Black 47 Farewell Tour/Marys Lane

When: Tue., Oct. 7, 8 p.m. 2014

Black 47 has accomplished plenty during a remarkable 25-year run. According to a press release announcing their farewell tour, the Irish rockers have “played more gigs at Shea Stadium than the Beatles, shut down the city of Hoboken, appeared multiple times on Leno, Letterman & O’Brien, and most recently the Jimmy Fallon Show for St. Patrick’s Day.” You can add a few film credits to the list of accomplishments too. Led by extremely articulate author, playwright, and SiriusXM radio host, Larry Kirwan, Black 47 doesn’t just settle for the typical Irish punk sound. The band’s music is much more well-rounded and delves into folk, rock and jazz. Their latest album, Last Call, even features a song called “Salsa O’Keefe.” Much like the Clash, these guys write about social and political issues and they perform with the same kind of passion.
