The Last Dispatch
A film by Helmut Schleppi
Starring Brad Corrigan (vocals, drums, guitar, percussion, and harmonica), Pete Francis Heimbold (vocals, bass and guitar), and Chad Urms
Filmmaker Helmut Schleppi shadows the indie rock band Dispatch in the 12 days leading up to their 2004 farewell concert in Boston, an event that drew more than 100,000 people to hear them play. Part of the drama inherent in this rockumentary is the fact that the band — which, during its nine years on the indie rock scene, was never signed by a label and never experienced traditional success — was expecting a modest crowd—but instead drew the largest crowd in independent music history. Dispatch has reunited twice since this farewell concert and is currently touring. They had two concerts in Chicago during June 2011, and both are reported to have sold out.
