Boston's Dropkick Murphys will play a matinee Sunday at the House of Blues to raise money for victims of last week's marathon bombing. Here's the official word the band posted on its Facebook page
We are playing House of Blues Boston this Sunday, April 28. Tickets are $25 and go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m.
This ticket link will go live at 10 a.m.:
This will be a special daytime matinee show, so that entire families can take part in this show. Doors will open at 12:30 p.m., and the first band will start at 1 p.m.
The bill on Sunday will also include our friends State Radio, Big D and The Kids, The Parkington Sisters, Old Brigade and Barroom Heroes.
The For Boston movement is a 3 stage plan. The tshirt was stage 1; this show is stage 2; stage 3 stage will be announced on Monday. All proceeds from the show will go toward helping victims of the bombings, their families and communities. The funds will be disbursed directly to those affected by the tragedy through our charity, The Claddagh Fund, which is a nationally-recognized official 501(c)3 charity whose mission is to serve the most vulnerable in our communities. Innocent people being hurt by terrorists fits the core of Claddagh's mission, and we are proud to be here, along with you, to be of service to the victims.
As we said before, we have a special message for scalpers: If you resell this ticket for profit you will rot in HELL.
Scalpers, you've been warned.
