Dropkick Murphys, Day 3

Dropkick Murphys, Red Alert
At Avalon, March 18 (Early show)

The Dropkicks hometown throwdown is nothing if not a family affair -- it's a wonder Ken Casey has any tickets left to sell after taking care of relatives and friends. For the Saturday-afternoon affair we sent former Crash and Burn frontman Bill Brown, because for one, he's been taking his daughter Teresa to hang out with DKM for years. From the stage, DKM shouted out their guests the Farrar family, for whom they've recorded a benefit single. And, y'know, it was typical Murphys: legions of bagpipers, Irish step-dancing girls, tons of kids. Bill's also about to join the extended DKM family; he's heading into the studio with Murphys female foil Stephanie Dougherty to begin recording a bunch of new tunes for her new project, Stephanie Dougherty and the Deadly Sins, which also features Ronnie from the Transplants on bass (and, at least on the demos, Dustin from Damone on drums).
