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
Parking was a long way away from the venue, so if you go, wear shoes which allow you to walk about 1/2 to 4/3 of a mile up and down inclines. The parking is free but very narrow parking spaces, try to get there a little early. The venue, is lovely, a sanctuary I believe.Music of the Americas info • Apr 15 2013 star this tip starred

A spectacular event put on by a small college's music department with extremely talented students. From the beginning set of Revolutionary War-time tunes (including Yankee Doodle Dandy) through a resounding presentation of the 1812 Overture, including an exploding cannon this was a fantastic reminder of why there is not an audio system or set of CD's that can come close to replacing a live orchestra in a specially designed for music venue. From the toe-tapping patriotic tunes of George M Cohan to the eerie sounds of helicopters landing on a mountain top in Korea and the haunting tune that was used at Ronald Reagan's memorial service the audience was enraptured by this extremely talented and disciplined group of college students.
The next time a music event comes up at the Concordia University Center for Worship and Performing Arts (Irvine, CA) featuring any of their musical groups - don't miss it!
