Dropkick Murphys proudly remain Boston’s rock ‘n’ roll underdogs turned champions. Since 1996, the boys have created the kind of music that’s meant to be chanted at last call, in packed arenas, and during the fourth quarter, third period, or ninth inning of a comeback rally. Their celebrated discography includes four consecutive Billboard top 10album debuts (2021’sTurn Up That Dial,11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory, Signed and Sealed in Blood, Going Out InStyle), along with2005’s gold-sellingThe Warrior’s Code featuring the near double platinum classic “I’m Shipping UpTo Boston.” Whether you caught a legendary gig at The Rathskeller (The Rat) under Kenmore Square, found the band by taking the T to Newbury Comics to copDo Or Diein ’98, discovered them in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winningThe Departed, or saw ‘em throw down at Coachella (or one of hundreds of other festivals), you’ve become apart of their extended family. Dropkick Murphys’ music has generated half-a-billion streams, they’ve quietly moved 8 million-plus units worldwide and the band has sold out gigs on multiple continents. In 2020, the band was one of the first to embrace streaming performances, starting with their streaming Up From Boston St. Patrick’s Day virtual performance. It was followed by last year’s landmarkStreaming Outta Fenwaylivestream, which drew more than 5.9 million viewers and held the #3 spot onPollstar’s “Top 2020 Livestreams” chart. Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick’s DayStream 2021...Still Locked Down, was #1 onPollstar’s Livestream chart for the week ending March 22, 2021, logging over 1 million views.

This Machine Still Kills Fascists breathes musical life into mostly unpublished lyrics by the legendary WoodyGuthrie, curated for the band by Woody's daughter Nora Guthrie.
Dentist comes from the oceanfront urban landscape of Asbury Park, New Jersey. Their sound combines the freedom of the beach atmosphere and the urgency of the city into a fuzzed out, surf punk-tinged brand of indie pop with hooks and infectious melodies to spare. Dentist is making waves with their latest album, "Making A Scene" and has performed all over the country including official shows at festivals including SXSW, Misikfest and Sea Hear Now.
When Jesse Ahern walks onstage, he looks like a regular guy-albeit one with a six string strapped across his body and an anchor tattoo under his right eye. As he tears through his set, easily rousing brand new crowds to shout his choruses back in his face, it’s clear Jesse could be everybody’s friend. Ahern’s tunes hold the clenched fists of the working class. Others put on full display the raw open heart of a man who is dedicated to love, and has known enough loss to cherish what he has at home. Still others reveal the tender, protective arms of a father who misses his kids when he’s off touring the world. On tour, Ahern stands before a giant backdrop emblazoned with the words ROOTS ROCK REBEL. Three words that proclaim the truth about his music, and the man himself. The new album produced by Ted Hutt (Dropkick Murphys, Gaslight Anthem) takes those three words a giant step further. Ahern has spent the last few years touring the world, sharing stages with Dropkick Murphys, Rancid, Chuck Ragan, Frank Turner and Jaime Wyatt. With the release of the “Roots Rock Rebel” Ahern will travel many more miles around the globe, converting more first time crowds into future longtime fans.

Fresh out of school and poised on the verge of adulthood, Phoneboy’s sophomore entry accentuates the power-pop elements of their earlier releases while honing in on a drum-tight enthusiasm that’s defined their signature sound. The appropriately named Moving Out collects a wise-beyond-their-years bittersweet Gen-Z sensibility of a generation forced to contend with not just typical adolescent grievance, but a world continually inundated with ephemeral fame, transient praise, hollow accolades, oh yeah and a global pandemic. Yet as dour as the circumstance, Phoneboy astounds with yet another record chock full of undeniable toe-tappers and bittersweet bangers determined to fuel get-togethers from blowouts to dormroom dance parties..
