Dropkicks’ fest on tour
There has always been a circus-like quality to Dropkick Murphys shows. So we’re not surprised the Dropkicks are creating something called the Shamrock-N-Roll Festival. The touring fest - featuring Ken Casey’s merry band as well as Street Dogs, Chuck Ragan, the Mahones, the Parkington Sisters, and local bands - kicks off with the Dropkicks’ Fenway shows Sept. 8 and 9, and continues in Maine, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia. Along for the ride will be Micky Ward, who’ll give boxing demonstrations and sign autographs.
