Update: We don't know if you guys spaced out or what, but we haven't gotten any entries to our Young Dubliners contest; they play at the Coach House on Thursday and we're giving away five tickets! Tweet at us or comment on our Facebook page!
Get your fill of St. Patrick's Day shenanigans with Celtic rockers the Young Dubliners, who, as our calendar editor Erin DeWitt says, are always down to bring their raucous, whiskey-soaked live show onstage. Better yet, we'll just quote from DeWitt's 2011 calendar pick: "The continual tourists, for whom 200-plus shows per year is pretty standard, may not all be from Ireland (just bassist Brendan Holmes and original founding member Keith Roberts are from Dublin, and hey! Guitarist Bob Boulding is from Long Beach!), but you wouldn't know it. Wild Irish rock, ballads and chanteys around raspy, pub-style vocals? Good enough for us."
We're giving away five pairs of tickets to their show at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on Thursday, March 15. Find out how to get them after the jump.
All you have to do to win tickets is leave us a message on Heard Mentality's Twitter (@ocweeklymusic) and/or Facebook with your name and email address! Winners will be notified by next Monday at noon; tickets will be held at will call.
