Paddy's Irish Cover Band Party with Decoration Ghost, Bastages, Magnolia Collective

When: Thu., March 17, 8 p.m. 2011

You'll be hard-pressed to find a better collection of Irish icons than this St. Patrick's Day bill. The Magnolia Collective opens with a take on pre-eminent Celtic-punks the Pogues. The rollicking blend of folk and verve runs from poignancy to insouciance. Local punks the Bastages are well suited to the challenge of covering Stiff Little Fingers, who were often described as the Irish Clash; their '70s punk bristles with agitprop and slashing intensity. Greensboro's Decoration Ghost tackles Thin Lizzy, whose melodic hard rock was a '70s radio staple. —Chris Parker
