St. Patty's in the 'Sha Mach Trois - ERIN GO BOCKENPLAUTZ!
257 W. Broadway
It's now a Bockenplautz tradition! We've done a St. Patty's day gig in Milwaukee's bestest suburb Waukesha every year since 2012, and 2014 will officially be THE AWESOMEST. Even more superior acoustic powerpop irish celebration!
It is a little-known fact, but Bockenplautz's own Christopher "Lumpy" Bockenplautz knows how to play about 100 Irish tunes, and we'll destroy at least 10 of them for thisshow. Plus some Ozzy.
Our friends at Montecito Ristorante * Lounge insisted we return to bring some gaelic pride to their weekend festivities, and who are we to deny them? Plus, who will drive the snakes out of the Carroll University campus if Bockenplautz doesn't show up? That's right... NO ONE.
Plus... It's Ladies Night at Montecito every Saturday. That's right ladies... finally a night JUST FOR YOU!

Returning again to Burke's Irish Castle, but this time for one of the biggest Milwaukee parties of the year - BREWERS OPENING DAY! Burke's is directly across from Miller Park, and has a game day shuttle. It's the former Derry Hegarty's bar on the corner of 54th and Bluemound. Great redesign of the bar, and great people.
Join us for free music, drink specials, food, and hopefully a brewer victory on opening day vs the Atlanta Braves.
Game starts at 1:10pm, we'll be playing immediately after the game ends until about 8pm. It'll be absolutely packed, and they're likely to have tons of ongoing merriment throughout the afternoon - great place to watch the game while you watch us get set up!

We are thrilled to announce that we will be playing for the first time ever at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino Fire Pit's Side Bar. Finally, Milwaukee's hardest working superior acoustic powerpop outfit joined together with the high-roller atmosphere of the Casino to really get your motor humming! Perfection!
Remember, you can't win if you don't play, and we can't melt your face if you don't stop playing for a minute and stop by the Fire Pit's Side Bar!
Bring a friend, tell a neighbor - it's the loosest slots in downtown MKE combined with the finest acoustic powerpop onslaught you'll ever hear.
This is one of the premiere locations to play in Milwaukee, and we are honored to get a chance to show the nice folks of the Potowatomi nation what we can do!
