While they are not playing this year, every time St. Paddy's rolls around we think of Black 47. They are the quintessential NYC Irish Band for our personal time in this town. Their album Live in NYC is a perfect testament to their live show when we were seeing them often all around the city; the minute it starts to roll we are transported back to 1997.
Today's show is not up to that level in quality, but who cares? Some of the fun of Black 47 was the chaos and drunkenness that was displayed each and every show they ever played. So lets dive into it today with a New Years Eve show from a place our band actually played.
Here is Black 47's NYE show from a few years back at Connolly's in NYC. Enjoy:
