Start stocking up on Guinness now, because it's going to be pretty hard to find come March.
Flogging Molly and the band's fans will probably put a pretty good dent in the supply when the L.A. Celtic-influenced punk band comes to the House of Blues Tuesday, February 9. The city's vendors will have just three weeks to resupply the city before Boston Celt-punk legends Dropkick Murphys perform at the same venue Monday, March 1--a little more than two weeks before St. Patrick's Day causes the demand for Irish crack to reach critical mass. The Dropkicks must have liked Dallas in March--they played last year on March 8, which gave me an opportunity to speak to singer Al Barr.
Other than that, it's been a fairly slow week for concert announcements, but we do have a few more listed after the jump.
