A terrific Irish Punk band that always draws big, rowdy crowds when it plays here in Cincinnati, Dropkick Murphys will not be celebrating St. Patrick's Day with an in-person concert for the second year in a row.

Instead, the band will offer "St. Patrick's Day Stream 2021... Still Locked Down." The stream will be free, and it goes live at 7 p.m. on March 17.

Dropkick Murphys' "St. Patrick’s Day Stream 2021...Still Locked Down" is presented by Boston-area tech company Pega (a provider of digital transformation software) and fueled by Death Wish Coffee, a sponsor of group and its Claddagh Fund — the band’s organization that raises donations for the most underfunded charities that support vulnerable populations in Boston and Philadelphia.

During the concert, Dropkick Murphys will preview some tracks from the forthcoming Turn Up That Dial.

Access "Still Locked Down" via DKMstream.com and Death Wish Coffee’s Facebook page.

Conscious of the severity of the pandemic, the band will perform a socially distanced show on an arena-sized stage with a full LED screen and a brand new video show. During the performance, it'll pass the "virtual hat” to take donations to help support pay employees. A portion of donations will go to charity, too.

Those who donate in advance or during the stream will see their name scroll across the ticker at the bottom of the screen during the show.

Here's to hoping the band returns in 2022 to properly celebrate the holiday in person.
