No Celtic punk band in the last two decades has been more ubiquitous than Dropkick Murphys. From being featured on movie soundtracks to being the unofficial house band of the Boston Red Sox, the Murphys have become synonymous with punk rock and bagpipes. Influenced by Celtic punks The Pogues, the seven-piece band has transcended into the pop consciousness without losing its edge. Expect flowing accordion melodies and gallant bagpipe reveries juxtaposed with overdriven power chords, punk beats and good old-fashioned gang vocals when the Bostonites land at Backstage Live with Dublin’s Blood or Whiskey in tow.
