If you’ve never seen The Saw Doctors before, you’re missing out. Sometimes called the second best Irish rock band (behind U2), the Docs rock it every time they go on stage. Lisa and I like to describe them as the product of their enivronment: a bunch of Irish Catholic guys who won’t grow up. Their songs verge on blasphemous at times (“Bless me Father for I have sinned/She had big brown eyes, silky skin”) but are always entertaining.
We’ve got our tickets to see them play Wolf Trap with Great Big Sea (a bunch of Newfies who play a good show too). It’s our first time to see a show at Wolf Trap, and we’re very excited. We’ll have the entire lawn section for dancing! The rest of the US tour schedule this summer is below. If you can’t get out to see them, you can always buy the concert DVD from the website! Definitely worth the money, but the concert experience cannot be duplicated on TV. You have to be there jumping around with the crowd to really experience the Saw Doctors.
