I have seen the Bastard Bearded Irishmen a few times before Thursday night when I sauntered a few blocks from my crib to catch an intimate performance at the monthly Studio X takeover at 105.9 The X in Greentree. These guys are really awesome in that frontman Jimmy is absolutely mesmerizing as he and the fantastic band barrel through their rock take on traditional Celtic party songs. Just a whole hell of a lot of fun. Their annual St. Patrick's Day gigs at The Rex are becoming legendary and for good reason. Don't miss out on this party next week.
