FlashMob!, and formerly, The Subsidies, have played a lot of St. Patty’s Days. The best one we played was several years ago at O’Gara’s. I think it’s no coincidence that this was the last time the event was actually on a Saturday. Fast forward a few years, and ka-blammey! It’s on a Saturday again!

This time, we’re heading further south to Babe’s Music Bar in Lakeville. For those of you unfamiliar with this, it’s the place where we opened for Soul Asylum (umm, name drop much?) last year. Fun show. That was outside, but this will be inside where it’s warm and beer-ish. And, by beer-ish, I mean GREEN beer-ish. I don’t know how they make it green, and I don’t really care. Just note that it’s still beer, and drinking several of them can make you unbearably pleasant.

Anywho, you know the deets. Babe’s. March 17. 9:30 pm. St. Patrick’s Day. And here’s the best part. IT’S ON A SATURDAY! Oh, the second best part is that there is no cover charge. Consider it a free green beer. And now that I think of it, the third best part is that we have a ton of new virgin songs ready to be de-flowered.
