St. Patrick's Day Fun and Music

One thing I love about St. Patrick's Day is all the drunk happy people - JUST KIDDING!!! Yeah, I know, the day usually brings to mind partying, wild green outfits, and maybe even green beer (if you're old enough to drink, that is). It's kind of like celebrating Mardi Gras in your own town, right? Except on St. Patrick's Day, usually we HAVE to wear something GREEN (if not, you'd get pinched, that's for sure!).

While St. Patrick's Day started off as a Christian holiday to honor Ireland's patron saints, the holiday festivities began to spread out into other countries and became perhaps one of the most celebrated annual events all around the world. I usually celebrate it by enjoying some good live music and having lots of fun. If weather permits, I try to take my children out to a local "Shamrock Festival" like the one year when we got to watch the popular Richmond band, Carbon Leaf, play for free at an outdoor stage. That was exciting! Even my kids had a blast at that show.

Speaking of free music, one of the bands I've written about more than once here has a new song available for a free download. Check out the Baltimore-based heavy metal band Rest Among Ruins, and their new demo "Phys" which they are looking to get some feedback on for an upcoming full-length album. The band's got a new bassist, too, in case you like to keep up with the latest on these East Coast heavy metal bands.
