St. Patrick's Day is too great a holiday to celebrate only once a year. So the House of Blues is throwing a Halfway to St. Patrick's Day Party that you won't want to miss. Providing the music will be the Young Dubliners, a popular group that fuses traditional Irish folk songs with modern rock. With anthemic hits like "Rosie" and "Buy You a Life" drawing comparisons to The Pogues and U2, and an energetic live show on par with Phish and the Dave Mathews Band, the Young Dubliners are sure to entertain. The hard-working group has twice appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and shared the stage with the likes of Jethro Tull, Chris Isaak and Great Big Sea, to name a few. There will also be Irish drink specials, powered by Jameson, and plenty of Guinness on tap. Also performing will be special guests King Washington. Learn More
