There is just something about good old Celtic Punk Rock, and the sounds of a pint of Guinness in your mouth and headbanging to a band like Dropkick Murphys that makes it magical. Despite their early beginnings being mostly based in traditional punk rock, they have mixed some Irish themes into their music stamping their own unique sound have established a huge following state side and overseas.
As usual these guys marked their road in the underground when they were notoriously releasing albums through the label Hellcat Records. After finding success there, they moved on to Warner Brothers and their audience reached new heights, same can be said about their live shows.
On this night at Huntington they put on another explosive and infectious vibe that had the crowd going through some of their biggest hits such as “Rose Tattoo”, “Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya” and crowd favorite “Kiss Me, I’m Shitfaced”.
You can see more tour dates below and don’t forget to catch the guys as they hit Dublin on March 17th.
