The Pride of Boston
The Dropkick Murphys quickly gained local fame after receiving the opportunity to open for the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Nearly every major punk band that came through the area requested them to be part of their evening lineup. They have made a point to emit wild amounts of energy while on stage – which you could argue that their songs require it. In 2000, the band greatly advanced their stage performance by growing in size. They took on four new band members who played guitar, mandolin, tin whistle, and the bagpipe.
Previously, they had brought in musicians to record some of these specialty instruments for their songs, but now they had performers who could commit to tours. 2002 hosted one of the biggest Drop Kick Murphys tours. They played and recorded three consequential shows at the Avalon Ballroom during St. Patrick’s Day weekend in Boston. The event has since become an annual occurrence and a bucket list item for fans of the band or street-punk in general.

The AC/DC of Celtic Punk
Celtic punk rock is a one-of-a-kind sub-genre that is distinguishable by the use of bagpipes, Irish lyrical themes, and Irish melodies. Much of the band comes from Irish families, but the decision to sound Celtic was not intentional initially. After writing their first song, Barroom Hero, they realized how much they sounded like the old Irish music they heard growing up. Now they aim “to be the AC/DC of Celtic punk rock.” When you listen to their exciting and energetic music you’ll be sure to note influences from some of their favorite bands like The Ramones, The Clash, and The Dubliners. The Dropkick Murphys may have not evolved in the same way as many other punk bands of their era, but that too was intentional. This means ticket holders can know exactly what they’re getting into when they attend a show.
