Dropkick Murphys -- Boston, MA -- March 15th, 2012

Insane show as always. Seeing the Dropkick Murphys in Boston is such a special experience. The crowd is always really into it and just having a good time and the band feeds off that so well. The setlist last night had a fair number of surprises in which was really cool.

The openers, The Mighty Regis and Frank Turner were alright. The Mighty Regis was one of the weridest bands I've ever heard. They were mostly celtic folk, but they had sudden bursts of punk. Not bad, but I spent most the set very confused. Frank Truner is a straight-up folk artist and his studio stuff didn't impress me. That being said, he has hell of a stage presence and his in-between song banter was awesome. He also brought someone up from the audience to play harmonica on one of his songs which was really cool. His music isn't my thing, but his performance wasn't bad at all.

Also there were mosh pits and no they were not broken up. So much for Boston cracking down on moshing.

Here is my best attempt at remembering the sets, the order may be a little off and I didn't recognize every song for the Murphys.

Frank Turner included:
Eulogy
Peggy Sang The Blues
Sons of Liberty
Dan's Song
I Still Believe


Dropkick Murphys:
The Irish Rover
Time to Go
The Gang's All Here
Going Out In Style
The Dirty Glass
The Burden
Deeds Not Words
Sunday Hardcore Matinee
Tessie
Peg O' My Heart
Never Alone
Memories Remain (this fucking floored me, I would have never excepted them to play this)
Bastards On Parade
Forever
Watch Your Back (Cock Sparrer Cover)
Take Em' Down (acoustic)
Citizen C.I.A (acoustic)
Boys on the Docks (acoustic)
I'm Shipping Up to Boston
Worker's Song
?
Broken Hymns
Captain Kelly's Kitchen
The State of Massachusetts


Encore:
Kiss Me, I'm Shitfaced
Skinhead on the MBTA
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (AC/DC cover)
Alcohol (Gang Green Cover)

Scores
The Mighty Regis 5/10
Frank Turner 6/10
Dropkick Murphys 9/10

I'm not too into this type of music but I wiki'd Dropkick Murphys and read about their political standpoints. It read that "on Saturday August 13, 2011, Dropkick Murphys issued a statement of solidarity with the 45,000 Communications Workers of America (CWA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) on strike from Verizon Communications, Inc."

Being a member of the Toronto chapter of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Dropkick Murphys get a HIGH FIVE from me.
