Event Type

Performed by County Hell playing songs by The Pogues (and The Popes) and members of El Front playing the music of Shane’s first punk band, The Nips.
County Hell:
County Hell is a lively Celtic rock group playing the legendary music of The Pogues. Accordion, banjo, violin, and mandolin blend with the dynamic exuberance of rock and roll. From very old sea shanties, classic ballads and raucous jigs, County Hell, based in the local Kingston area, specializes in keeping the energy high and traditional modern Irish music alive.
El Front:
With garage punk anthems inspired by themes ranging from historical, gritty tales of the Spanish Revolution to the corruption of modern capitalism, El Front weaves lyrical narratives with urgent contemporary relevance into a stirring and inspirational 60s garage and 70s punk rock-infused manifesto that dares listeners to question authority and envision a more just world free from oppression. El Front reminds us that punk rock’s spirit of anarchy and rebellion is alive and well…El Front (Catalan for “The Front”) is comprised of Chris Bradley on drums, Matty Dread on guitar and vocals, Brian Tamm on bass, and Sarah Perotta on combo organ. Together they put forth a compelling soundtrack for the new normal, a clarion call to youth of the next generation that reverberates with punk ethos and provokes critical thinking and positive action.
