Dropkick Murphys will perform at Rochester Institute of Technology at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 28 in Clark Gymnasium. Originally from Boston, Dropkick Murphys are a seven-man punk band with an Irish twist. With two upcoming releases—The Singles Collection, Vol. 2: 1998-2004 due out in March and a full-length album to be released in June—Dropkick Murphys are about to embark on a tour of Ireland and Britain. The RIT concert is one of their last American shows before the tour.
Opening is Toronto-based band Three Days Grace. A rock/alternative punk band that first made the charts in the early 2000s, they are most known for their grungy hit “I Hate Everything About You.”
Tickets—$10 for students, $15 for faculty, staff and alumni and $20 general admission—are available at the CAB office and candy counter in the Student Alumni Union. Call 475-5210 for more information.
