The Pogues began a multi-night stand last Thursday at Avalon, in what is generally recognized as the official jump-off for St. Patrick's Day weekend, which in Boston Irish circles lasts about two weeks, give or take a month. Pogues fans have been back in force for the group's last two tours, which marked the return of their original vocalist: a tall glass of Guinness stout. The Guinness, which was given pride of place on a stool at the front of the stage, was spotted periodically sipping from Pogues mascott Shane MacGowan.
