Anyone here a fan of anyone like Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphy's, the Pogues, etc.?
I'm currently trying to decide whether to go to DKM's St. Patrick's Day show in Boston. That would be a hell of a show.

I've seen Flogging Molly and The Dropkick Murphys many times. They're both good live bands, but I don't get much repeat listenability out of the albums I own by either of them. The Pogues are pretty good.
The Real McKenzies from Vancouver are worth checking out if you're interested in traditional Scottish sounds combined with punk rock songs about whiskey and soccer.

I love the Pogues.
Dropkick Murphys are fun, Flogging Molly ok, but they don't really begin to compare to what Shane MacGowan and co. were doing for several albums. There was a brutal, vulgar, fragile poetry to both their words and and music that is hard to match.
