My own favorite St. Paddy’s Days were probably the ones spent at SXSW down in Austin. There, the day has a distinctly Mexican and Spanish flavor, and the Running of the Leprechauns was always great fun (get there early or you won’t see a thing). Be that as it may, here are some fine Irish tunes, beginning with Punk as it ought to be played and ending with some mighty big hair.
Stiff Little Fingers – Belfast
The Undertones – Derry
Stars of Heaven – Dublin
That Petrol Emotion – Derry/London
Thin Lizzy – Dublin
