Live Ledge #233: The Pogues

I originally wasn't going to do a St. Patrick's Day show. With the actual holiday being yesterday, and my city's celebrtion have occurred last weekend, there really didn't seem a point to it.
But then as I was contemplating tonight's theme, I discovered this fabulous Pogues tribute album. Curated by a Russia's Vladimir Andreevich, this 27 track collection of bands from all over the world exceed all expectation. Most tribute records are terrible! You buy them because you're a collector of one or two of the contributors, and never listen to the rest. Not in this case. It's great from top to bottom. Grab it for free while you can at their bandcamp site.
That's not all we have for tonight's show. Following my pal Gorman's lead, I played a little trick at teh beginning of the show with nothing but songs with "green" in the title. From their we moved on to some of my favorite Irish punk bands (Undertones, Stiff Little Fingers), some contemporary American bands with Irish influences (Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys), and so much more.
