We'll have a full slide show up soon, with the best of Dropkick Murphys, Naked Raygun, and Off With Their Heads, from their Saturday show in Chicago. For now, here's a teaser with a few yellow hued shots for Mellow Yellow Monday. The bands were anything but mellow, but hearing live music is our favorite way to mellow out on the weekends. Evidently around 4,000 other people at The Congress Theatre show agreed. Enjoy!
Dropkick Murphys is a unique band and unbelievably fun to see live if you like punk and heavier stuff. Where else can you see people crowd surf to bagpipes, accordion, and violin?!
We'll have a full feature later, but many of the guys in the band are dads and they even have a small daughter singing back up vocals on their new CD, Going Out In Style, coming out TOMORROW. They even have a Boston show coming up where you have to have a kid with you to get in.
We have NEVER seen as many young kids at an adult punk show as Dropkick Murphys Saturday night. It was fantastic to see so many families rock together! We'll have a big show shots family gallery up soon, too, filled with just kids and families. Maybe we caught you or someone you know.
Thanks for an excellent weekend. These Irish punks know how to rock!
