Whatever sex appeal Dropkick Murphys can claim belongs to Stephanie Dougherty, the brassy, tattooed lass the band brought on to lend a woman's touch to their drunk-punk classic "The Dirty Glass." Now she's stepping out as the frontwoman of a spidery deathpunk band called the DEADLY SINS

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.
We were going to blog today. Really. We know it's late, so here's what we meant to tell you around 12 hours ago...
1. Holly Golightly is playing the Paradise right about now with Keys to the Streets of Fear. She's doing a duo thing you can listen to over here.
2. Our knowledge of '77 UK punks the Prefects? Nil, except that our dude Nick Blakey, who is never wrong about this shit, is creaming his pants.

The three original songs on GIRL AUTHORITY'S new Road Trip (out Tuesday) instantly catapult them from the Kidz Bop pack -- that runt-litter of tween hopefuls churning out Totally Hits for tots, ad infinitum, until their voices crack -- and herald the coming of .
SOOOO is for the children. No idea how they'll all fit on the Paradise Lounge stage, but Canada's answer to !!! stop by tonight en-route to SXSW, courtesy of the Happy Endings crew. Sample some mpfrees and a remix from SOOOO's Nik7 over here.
Weirdest tour of the spring right here: woolly-mammoth thrash, leftist mallpunk, indie bleeding hearts, and strange-o pigfuckery all on the same bill. Sponsored by the acronym WTF?

Ever since we heard about Hollertronix taking root at the Ukranian Club in Philly, we'd been dreaming about a Boston party scene flowering at grimy, non-club-like venues. The obvious corollary was the Elks Lodge in Central Square: two basement rooms, no attitude (unless you count the gentleman's no-cursing rule enforced by the bartenders), a two-o'clock license, and -- dude -- paneling.
Allston's Alexander Chen, a/k/a BOY IN STATIC, put out his debut album Newborn on the label run by the Notwist dudes, and spent a chunk of last year touring as the opening act for 13&God. He's finally set a May 29 release date for the follow-up, Violet, on Mush Records, and the first single, "Where It Ends," is now available for your downloading, with an accompanying video making the rounds at YouTube.
DOWNLOAD: The Sterns, "Supreme Girl" (mp3)Boston takes its power pop seriously. So in a town where no Kinks or XTC reference goes unnoticed, it’s telling that THE STERNS have quickly become the power-pop band to beat. Their Sinners Stick Together has won a dedicated following, and on March 13 it’ll begin getting a national push in conjunction with the Sterns' journey to South by Southwest.
Bonus track: the singular say-what? facial expression of M. Ward . . .

So we heard you dudes were so stoked about the Clipse poster that someone stole the blown-up version right off the stand! We had our eyes on that thing when it was in the office. Whoever got it, we hope you were man enough to get it signed. Send photos!
And since so many of you were bugging Mike Johnson about where to get the poster after he ran out, we figured we'd upload you a super-duper pdf of the joint.
