HERE'S ST. PATRICK'S DAY:
...with JOE STRUMMER and THE POGUES! People will be getting their drink and dance on, so enjoy Joe, Shane and the band putting a Celtic spin on "London Calling" and "I Fought The Law" for St. Patrick's Day, 1988. Follow that up with the Dropkick Murphys' videos for "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" (which you may have heard in Martin Scorsese's The Departed) and "The Wild Rover." Round it out with an Old Grey Whistle Test of my fave Pogues song, "Sally MacLennane," and a Shamrock Shake.
