Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Dropkick Murphys/Lucero/Skinny Lister

When: Tue., Feb. 18, 8 p.m. 2014

Dropkick Murphys are as integral to St. Patrick’s Day as green beer or kegs and eggs. Seriously, try to avoid anthems such as “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” or, better yet, “Kiss Me I’m Shitfaced.” With a career spanning more than a decade, the seven-piece punk-rock act has redefined the standard for fast-paced rock that you and your parents can both agree on, all while proving they’re more than a one-holiday-hit novelty. Their eighth album, the just-released Signed and Sealed in Blood, expanded their Irish image and landed them on modern rock radio, charting higher than any of their past releases thanks to songs like “The Boys are Back” and “Rose Tattoo,” both of which show off the guys’ softer side. Don’t worry, though, the tunes still come chock-full of bagpipes, sing-along choruses and rock beats. (Nikki Hunt)
