The "Celtic Punk" Dropkick Murphys have been doing things their way since 1996. Old-school fans of Dropkick know things started out a bit more punk than Irish. The band's first couple albums "Do or Die" (1998) and "The Gang's All Here" (1999) were more hardcore punk albums.
In 2001 Dropkick Murphys released "Sing Loud, Sing Proud" and began to tap into that Boston Irish sound that would set them apart.
Songs like "The Spicy McHaggis Jig", and "Kiss Me I'm Shit Faced" (from Blackout) would set a new tone for the band.
In 2005 Dropkick would release the gold-selling The Warrior’s Code featuring
the near double platinum classic “I’m Shipping Up To Boston.”
Since 1988 Pennywise has been setting the scene for punk rock. Formed in the South Bay of Los Angeles, a neighborhood with a rich punk-rock history, Pennywise went on to amass an international following with their relentless touring and a melodic, high-energy sound fusing classic punk, surf punk, and blistering hardcore. Through the years, Pennywise has solidified its place in punk history with iconic songs like “F*ck Authority,” “Alien,” and “Bro Hymn”.
Straight out of Dublin, The Scratch will set the early St. Patrick's Day mood for the Quad Cities when they open the show at The Rust Belt on February 25th.
For the first time ever in the Quad Cities, Dropkick Murphy's. Don't miss out on a fun night of music and drinks. Get your tickets here. And win your tickets below!
