Sure, last night's shindig was billed surreptitiously as a chance to "meet and greet" the Dropkicks dudes, but c'mon: you knew they were gonna throw down, right? We're talking about a band that sells out five nights straight at St. Patricks Day, some of them two-a-days, then tacks on a couple extra 9 am acoustic shows at Irish pubs for good measure. Couple of songs at the Hard Rock to benefit Denis Leary's firefighters' foundation? Yeah, sure: hey, did you know our first singer left to become a fireman? Thanks to Nicole for the pics.
