Sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, druids, Vikings, Hindu goddesses ... and one little bumble bee with a big problem -- what else could they possibly have packed into this explosive, sexually charged, '70s-inspired psychedelic show? Dancers, singers and live musicians? Oh, don't worry -- they've got plenty of those, as well. The first staging of this exotic and exciting show since 2011, the Triple Door will soon find itself filled with a colorful kaleidoscope of choreographed dances, sexy burlesque performances and impressive live music featuring what The Examiner described as "powerful, mind-blowing vocals ... the band alone is worth the price of admission." So come strap yourself in for a 90-minute extravaganza of non-stop, Broadway-style excess at House of Thee Unholy. Learn More

I was sad that Karan Casey had to cancel at the last moment due to her mother's brain cancer and emergency surgery. Susan McKeown was a great choice replacement. She and John Doyle's unexpected reunion after 17 years made for special evening in it's own rights.
I asked to sit in the front row and was very pleased with the intimacy of that seating. I normally sit further back. Unbeatable service at the Triple Door, from attentive servers to sound and production quality.
With the discounted tickets via Goldstar, I am happy to be able to go out and hear more music than I would otherwise during this down ecomomy.
Once heard, you would never take Grammy-award-winning vocalist Susan McKeown for anyone else. After singing on the streets of her native Dublin as a teenager, Susan left for New York with a bursary from The Arts Council of Ireland and a scholarship to the American Musical & Dramatic Academy, and soon became a regular performer at the legendary East Village club Sin-É. The enlivening intelligence of her songs marked Susan as a distinctive talent. Her debut album Bones (1995) garnered wide critical acclaim, established her reputation as an inventive songwriter with a powerful voice, and set her on the road to an international touring and recording career. Along the way she has boldly yet lovingly re-imagined Celtic music, bringing it immeasurably enhanced - yet spiritually intact - into the new era of world music. Ten albums later Susan has a catalog of music that solidly spans the realms of world music and rock.
John Doyle’s gifts as a guitarist, songwriter, vocalist, and producer have played an essential role in the ongoing renaissance of Irish traditional music. As a member of Irish-American supergroup Solas -- and a highly sought-after session player -- Doyle pioneered a rhythmic, sophisticated approach to Irish guitar accompaniment, setting a new standard for the instrument.
