Dropkick Murphys Celebrate 20 Years At Webster Hall
Dropkick Murphys Celebrate 20 Years At Webster Hall 3-9 (and 3-10) 2016
Twenty years; not bad for a band that was started on a bet! The man who took that bet was Dropkick Murphys founder as well as bassman and vocalist Ken Casey. The band formed in Quincy (part of Greater Boston) and has become one of the bands most associated with Beantown. Casey sat down for a chat prior to the show on Wednesday and spoke about the band’s DIY roots, why the Dropkicks caeer trajectory has been steadily upward, and that whole Boston/New York thing.
In addition to the NY1 report above that includes an Agnostic Front reference (AF!), here’s some bonus interview footage in which Casey gives a nod to another essential Boston group the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. He also talks about record-making and reveals that the game plan for the next record is to hole up in West Texas!
