I’ve been posting about the ghosts of St. Patrick’s Days past all (very early) morning, but here is one for today, tonight, SEVEN PM EST (or as Dropkick Murphys put it, Boston time). I saw Dropkick Murphys on March 13th, 2013 (here) and wrote: “imagine if you will a boatload of Ben Afflecks in “Good Will Hunting” and there you have them.” I also wrote that they are as Boston as they are Irish, they single handedly forced NYC to give up its name as Ground Zero for Irish-American rockers (what the fuck: the Celtics, the Patriots, the Red Socks: why are we getting creamed by Boston?). ANd I also wrote that they were just plain awesome.
If you have never seen the band live (and especially if you have) do yourself a favor and head to their Facebook page tonight at 7pm (here), get no more than ten friends, a coupla crates of Guinness and streams of whisky and celebrate the Emerald Eye in style….
