Here's today's BOSTON ACCENTS playlist, setting the tone for the full-record stream of the DROPKICK MURPHYS new album, Signed and Sealed In Blood. Listen in tomorrow on WFNX as we are joined in the studio by Westland!
DROPICK MURPHYS “Tessie” -- It's Dropkicks Week here at WFNX, and we gave away a pair of passes to tomorrow's CD release party at McGreevys by asking this question, appropriate with yesterday's end to the NHL lockout: What's the name of the fight song the Dropkick Murphys wrote for the Boston Bruins roughly a decade ago? Answer: "Time To Go"
We've known for a while that it was coming -- thanks to Jimmy Eat World's Clarity throwback tour, which was announced several weeks back -- but now it's official: the Lansdowne Street House of Blues (which of course will bare no resemblance to the old Original House of Blues in Harvard Square where you saw R.L. Burnside and David Johanssen and such) will open in February, with a lineup that sounds not unlike what the old Avalon would've played host to around this time of year.

Not that they’re strangers or anything, but it’s nice to know that there’s now a single degree of separation between Boston’s two biggest punk-rock franchises: members of Dropkick Murphys and the Unseen have fired up two new bands who share former Crash and Burn guitarist Bill Brown.
