Dropkick Murphys formed in 1996 in Boston, MA. The band began as a group of friends looking to play music together for fun. They started playing in the basement of a friend's barbershop and the rest is history. Their goal has always been to blend the musical influences they each grew up with including: punk rock, Irish folk, rock and hardcore. The end result? A loud, raucous, chaotic and often out-of-tune mix they call their own. If you would like to see them perform LIVE at First Avenue on Saturday, February 25th, order your Dropkick Murphys tickets today! Don't forget you can always stop by our Minneapolis office on your way to the show to pick up your tickets.
