Bastard Bearded Irishmen Bring Good-timey Debauchery to Kings Rook Club by Ryan Smith

Friday, Feb. 19

With a name like Bastard Bearded Irishmen, you’d think these guys would be wild. Raucous. Hairy. Maybe even a little ferocious.

And you’d be right on all counts.

The Pittsburgh-based band has been ripping it up with its original blend of folk, rock, punk, traditional, and contemporary Celtic stylings since 2008, sharing stages with the likes of Gogol Bordello and Dropkick Murphys.

The Pittsburgh-based band – mentioned in Rolling Stone in 2013 as a “Band to Watch,” among other accolades – has been ripping it up with its original blend of folk, rock, punk, traditional, and contemporary Celtic stylings since 2008, sharing stages with the likes of Gogol Bordello and Dropkick Murphys.

On Friday, Feb. 19, they bring their musical rampage back to the Kings Rook Club, setting up for what’s sure to be an evening of good-timey debauchery.

With pre- and post-performances both upstairs and down, Erie’s own honky-tonkin’ string band the Bootlegger’s Bible Club will open and close the show.

So long as you’re 21-plus, sounds like that could be a really good time. — Ryan Smith
