You should have the LeperKhanz play. Their Irish influenced reggae is truly a new thing.

--> the live show can incorporate bits and pieces of anything from thousand year old sea shanties to NWA or Rage Against the Machine.


--> "...mix of intense high energy Irish music, heavy psychedelic tones, and feel good pub favorites ......their music sounds like a bunch of crazy ass pirates on steroids."

Listening to Cottage in the Grove now - and could easily be slipped into a Pogues set, but this is the first song I've heard from them so I'll reserve judgement. I'm ALL for throwing some Celtic vibes into the mix - Gaelic Storm (also from SoCal) is top notch - what d'ya say Warren and Gretchen? Lets get the "hippies" dancing to some jigs and reels... =D

Very nice indeed - the vocals are quite a bit rougher than the Pogues - but it adds to the pub-like "underground" feeling. This will get more rotation in my playlists for sure.

Oh yeah - W. & G., the Wicked Tinkers are also good festival entertainment - and they don't even require a stage most of the time - they just wander around and play for people...might be interesting to see what happens when they stumble upon a drum circle.

They have some reggae tunes they do as well. Not too much on the current album, however "All for me Grog" is a one drop I think..... Their live version of "Dirty Old Town" is a really heavy steppers beat though.
