Chet’s Last Call, that old second floor dive across from the Garden. It predates me by many years but I love the stories of Boston music. The documentary made its debut in 2018 and has its streaming premiere beginning tomorrow, Sept 19

Chet’s was on Causeway Street, above the Penalty Box. Different crowds, same owners. A venue across from North Station that once housed some of the most raucous bands in Boston. It quietly opened in 1983 and four years later without warning. Richard “Chet” Rooney is remembered for the love he gave to the many musicians who played at Chet’s. He died in December 2015 from a heart attack at the age of 61. His namesake room was what Boston rock legend is made of. As Joe Harvard says in the film: “Nothing but wise guys and off-duty detectives on the first floor; nothing but junkies and punk rockers and lesbians on the second floor.” Many of the bands we know and love today played Chet’s – Treat Her Right, Del Fuegos, Pixies, O Positive, Nervous Eaters, Neighborhoods, Dropkick Murphys, Throwing Muses, Scruffy The Cat, and the Bosstones, before the Mighty Mighty. It celebrated the underbelly of sounds that made Boston great. Punk, metal, industrial, rockabilly, art-rock, roots, soul, Chet’s had it.

I always wonder if walls like these could talk, what might they say?
