Kick-off your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations early in 2011 with Dropkick Murphys, the Boston-based Irish-Punk outfit best known for the hit single “I’m Shipping Up To Boston,” which was featured in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning film, The Departed. They will be performing live at Mohegan Sun Arena on Sunday, March 13th at 7:00pm with special guest Against Me!. Click here to purchase tickets.

From meager beginnings playing all-ages matinees at now-defunct Boston clubs to a prominent placement in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning film, The Departed, the Dropkick Murphys have evolved over the past decade into one of the most beloved punk-inspired bands in the world. Now, with The Meanest Of Times, their sixth studio album of spirited, cathartic and heartfelt anthems, the oft-cherished seven-piece outfit has also launched its own record label, Born & Bred Records, as a means to bring new DKM music to the world while assuming full control of their destiny. As evidenced by the explosive, uncompromising and downright brilliant album-opener, “Famous For Nothing” and the set bowing, optimistic roar of “Never Forget,” The Meanest Of Times is book-ended in top form and captures among its fifteen tracks what founding bassist Ken Casey calls “themes of childhood, growing up and family.”

“Growing up, I saw my share of hard times,” Casey says. “I think a lot of us did. But looking back on it, I wouldn’t trade them for anything, because those hard times made us all who we are today.” “To me, the record is a celebration of life,” frontman Al Barr adds. “It’s about redemption. It’s about coming up in the world and the way it shapes you. It’s about not taking your family and friends for granted and it’s about living in the moment. The cover is a bunch of Catholic School kids messing around and looking angry on the playground. And if you think back to your elementary and high school years, in a lot of ways, they sometimes really were the meanest of times.”

Mohegan Sun Arena was ranked the 4th busiest venue in 2009 by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.” For more information on concerts and other great events at Mohegan Sun, visit mohegansun.com.
