Being an Irishman myself I have to confess that St. Patrick’s Day is my favorite time of the year. Forget the winter holidays, the turkey dinner, or the fireworks. I like my day to be green and I am not talking about Earth Day.
I remember the days when I would drink the day away with my brother and friends. We would start the day early, 4am early, and pretty much try to destroy our livers. I would sing, ok attempt to sing, Irish songs while spending ridiculous amounts of money on liquids that would guarantee in a disturbing hangover. Boondock Saints would be played on repeat as we took naps to try and sober up for the rest of the evening for another round of debauchery. One might think it is stupid and a waste but some of the best days I ever had were with my friends just being stupid.
As the years pass by though I am not the drinking machine I used to be and the thought of green beer does nothing for my taste buds. Kegs and eggs is something of my past and I feel old admitting it. Pour me a pint of Guinness just like any other day for me and I am perfectly contempt.
I still love the day and I always will. I love everything about being Irish and I especially love my Irish punk rock music.
Yes, I really was going somewhere with this…
Remember these guys? The Dropkick Murphys?
To help celebrate the big day I have decided to post some videos that the Dropkick Murphys have been posting around the interwebs. Almost makes me want to relocate to Boston…
If you are wondering where some of this footage came from I might as will let you know that today, March 16th, the Dropkick Murphys released a live CD/DVD for all to see.
Six shows in seven days were thrown into the release that is more like a party like none other. That is what Live On Lansdowne, Boston MA is all about, fun. If you like all that you saw on here you should make sure you pick up this ultimate St. Patrick’s Day party favor – after all every day is St. Patty’s Day. Pint glasses not included and aspirin highly suggested.
