If there’s one thing I associate with St. Paddy’s Day in Boston, it’s cultural appropriation. If there’s two things I associate with St. Paddy’s Day in Boston, it’s day drinking (the irony involved is not lost on me.)

Put on by Greenstien’s Best, the all-ages matinee show features five local ska bands and will start at 3pm. Get more information on the show’s Facebook event page.
To help familiarize yourself with the proceedings, we’ve put together a playlist of sorts with all the bands involved:
