|John Holk & the Sequins: Pure Nashville|
|The Corktown Popes kick it into high gear|
|Goodmen, Youngquist and Burns getting it done|
As midnight fell, the St. Paddy's day party started and the whiskey continued to flow (both on stage and in the crowd), the setlist naturally drifted from Irish Rock show into pure Irish holiday bar band fare. The band shifted effortlessly into this roll, bringing out stools and acoustically covering many standard Irish pub songs. The band, however, never let you forget you bought a ticket to a rock show in the first place. From the multiple, green-clad audience members dancing (swaying?) on stage to the epic, punk rock inspired, crowd-walk-turned-table-dive that sent dozens of audience members, drinks and beer bottles flying, this was one St. Patrick's day show I will always remember.
