If someone had told me 10 years ago that I’d be seeing a pretty killer punk rock show at Fenway Park, I would’ve responded with something like, "Wow, that’s kind of fucked up." Which it probably is, in some respects, but the grand Pooh-Bahs of Irish folk punk DROPKICK MURPHYS long ago bridged whatever gap exists between punks and people who really like baseball.
Looks like Pearl Jam fans will have to wait til next year.
Everyone's perennial guess for who'll-play-Fenway-next turned out not to be on the menu after all. Instead, as some people correctly guessed, it'll be DROPKICK MURPHYS and the MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES at Fenway Park on September 8 and 9.
***EVEN NEWER UPDATE***: Yup, it's Dropkick Murphys and the Bosstones. But is it really Fenway Park? Read this and judge for yourself.
UPDATE: Our bud Jed Gottlieb over at the Boston Herald has done some digging and unearthed a local possibility -- the Dropkick Murphys and Mighty Mighty Bosstones
OMG, dudes, it's a week before DROPKICK MURPHYS begin their annual St. Patrick's Day hometown stand. And, this being an Olympic year, it's also the release of another Live on St. Patrick's Day CD/DVD, on the band's Warner Bros-distributed label Born & Bred. And, this being an early-Easter year, it's also about a week and a half before Opening Day.
