The long reign of Riverdance may have scared away many musicians with affinity and talent for Celtic music. But not The Killdares. They've reclaimed the genre, regularly convening in Texas for the meeting of some of the best and brightest minds in music. They pair bagpipes and fiddles with electric guitars, bass and drums to make traditional music that brings down rock venues. Without a tap shoe in sight. The Killdares play at 9 p.m. Thursday at the House of Blues Dallas' Pontiac Garage, 2200 N. Lamar St. Tickets are $10. Call 214-978-BLUE or visit HOB.com.
