Dropkick Murphys concerts don’t wind down, they stop. After listening to this album you’ll be ready to get drunk and belligerent. If you weren’t ready beforehand, that is.
If you don’t know who the Dropkick Murphys are, they’re a seven-piece group of Irish punk rockers from Boston notably featuring a piper. This album is a live show in Boston (!) on St. Patrick’s Day (!!!) so it’s as hardcore as anything you've ever heard.
Tracks to watch out for: The Rocky Road to Dublin, Curse of a Fallen Soul, the Spicy McHaggis Jig (A ballad about the band’s piper, Spicy McHaggis), Nutty (Boston Bruins' theme, the NHL team).
Happy St. Patrick’s day.
