Strung Out & Dropkick Murphys (03/08/2010)



Strung Out Formed circa 1992, when punk was old and grunge was young, California punks Strung Out laid down rock ditties that influenced pop-punk expansion with their pop-kissed speedy numbers honed with sung vocals and hard guitars. The geezers are still bopping, ably kicking up dust and filling mosh pits. The lads' recent album title, Agents of the Underground, apparently remains a modus operandi as well. With Dropkick Murphys and Larry & His Flask. The Fillmore Charlotte (Samir Shukla)

Dropkick Murphys It's getting close to St. Patty's Day, so where else would you rather be on this night, aside from getting hit in the face with a heavy dose of Celtic rock. The band hit the mainstream after "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" was featured in The Departed. Don't think of them as one-hit wonders though – only passers-by will like them for one song. Loyal fans have been loving them for more than a decade. The Fillmore Charlotte (Jeff Hahne)
