Someone's gonna get their head kicked in.
Former Southie resident and current UFC capo Dana White has announced that he's giving free tickets . . . to UFC club members . . . to see House of Pain's first performance in 10 years . . . in Boston . . . at the Roxy . . . on St. Patrick's Day. We just did the math: ladies and gentlemen, we give you a show that will make the Dropkick Murphys mosh pit look like a quiet walk in the Fens.
For the Boston Irish, about the only thing that could make this any bigger is if Whitey Bulger's on the VIP list.
As it happens, Dana gets a two-fer on this one -- he's also promoting his new non-MMA TV drama centering on -- what else? -- the Boston mob. "Obviously I love the city of Boston," White pressed-release us, "I just filmed my new show Black Souls there, so I’m going to throw a St. Patrick’s Day party with House of Pain at the Roxy Boston,” said White. “House of Pain was one of my favorite bands when I lived there, and they are going to perform again for the first time in over a decade - I’m opening up a few hundred tickets to UFC Fight Club members and for local radio stations, so UFC fans in Boston can come hang with us on March 17th.”
Technically it's invite-only, but look for a couple local radio stations to get some giveaways. Or just brown-bag a Guiness, stand outside the Roxy, and watch the bodies being carried out on stretchers, which should be almost as amusing.
