This St. Patrick’s Day, Sunday March 17th, 2013 at The Satellite in LA’s Silver Lake
burg. Come celebrate the continuing legacy of Irish/Brit acoustic punk pioneers THE POGUES in a spirited and spot on musical performance of their land mark album “Rum, Sodomy and The Lash”.
In its 10th year of life, this endearing tribute to THE POGUES has a uniquely Los Angeles lilt as it’s performed by EAST LA’s Chicano troubadours OLLIN. The stage show masterfully replicates the early days of THE POGUES with historically correct instrumentation (accordion, tin whistle, banjo/mandolin, bass, and stripped down drum kit) and sonic respect to the brilliant production of “El Rey de America” Elvis Costello. The 2 set show also features material from the debut POGUES release, “Red Roses For Me” and selections from later releases, what sprouted as a simple tip of the sombrero to music and multi-cultural LA on St. Patrick’s Day, has bloomed into a tradition. Die hard Pogues fans wait all year to fill the dance floor and sing (and drink) along to their favorite songs.
DOORS open at 8:30, show begins at 9pm. Tickets are $10
Special Guest, DJ Tumors will be spinning his rare collage of vintage LA punk and weird world sounds.
