MUSIC AND DEATH WISH COFFEE—A MATCH MADE IN MISFIT HEAVEN
Dropkick Murphys turned the sh*tshow that was St. Patrick’s Day 2021 into an absolute headbanger, livestreaming a performance in lieu of their annual holiday live show that allowed millions to feel like they were Shipping Up to Boston, despite travel restrictions.
So at a time when we were all missing live shows and band tees like a mother . . . and we couldn't party the way we were accustomed to on St. Paddy's Day, thanks to a little luck of the Irish and a lot of the Dropkick Murphys—they did it again!
Our socially-distanced world encountered the kind of rock ‘n’ roll that was meant to be chanted at last call, in packed arenas and during the fourth quarter, third period, or ninth inning of a comeback rally.
The St. Patrick’s Day Livestream: Still Locked Down, fueled by Death Wish Coffee and longtime DKM partner Pega aired on Wednesday, March 17 at 7:00 PM ET & 4:00 PM PT via www.DKMstream.com and Death Wish Coffee’s Facebook page.
The livestream virtually connected headbanging fanatics with the Celtic gods on an arena-sized stage, socially distanced, providing the same big-show atmosphere and unleashing brand-new tracks from Turn Up That Dial, their 10th full-length studio album that debuted for anxious fans April 30 via Born & Bred Records.
Instead of charging for tickets, the band passed the virtual hat for donations to help support their efforts to keep the music alive. Those who donated in advance or during the stream saw their name scrolled across the ticker at the bottom of the screen during "Still Locked Down."
Dropkick Murphys and DWC also partnered to make limited-edition merch for fans to snatch up during the livestream show that included co-branded T-shirts, crewneck sweatshirts and bandannas. And 10% of all profits benefitted the Claddagh Fund, a charity serving vulnerable populations in Boston and Philadelphia.
St. Paddy’s 2021 was spent the right way—the rowdy way—with DKM and DWC.
Sláinte, mother functioners 🤘☕🇮🇪
