Imagine our surprise when an announcement that the Dropkick Murphys had just been added to the lineup for Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration landed in our inbox. No way, we said, do you also mean to tell us that the sky overhead is blue and the world is round? Because we were surprised when the Dropkicks weren't on the bill to begin with. The Dropkicks and Boston are like beer and St. Patty's Day, like St. Patty's Day and, uhh, the Dropkicks.
But all joking aside, this is great news and means this big concert — with a lineup already boasting heavyweights including Carole King, NKOTB, Boston, Aerosmith, Jimmy Buffet, the J. Geils Band, and many more (plus Dane Cook. lol @ Dane Cook. Take that whichever way you please) — is just going to rock that much harder.
Your move, Janovitz.
