McCarthyizm returns to Sportsmens in May, but this time on a Saturday night! Mark your calendars for Saturday May 9th, folks. It’s a very special double bill with our buddies Leroy Townes and the Lonestars (pictured here). Maybe we can twist Leroy’s arm and get him on stage to sing a couple with us. If all else fails, just buy him a Genny! Come on out on May 9th and see what happens. It’s an 8:30 start, get there EARLY.
Hey just a heads up. While McCarthyizm was getting their Irish up for the St. Patrick’s week of events here in the Western New York area, our song “Victors Morning” from the Victors & Vices album was selected to be included in Indie Anthems X digital mix tape distributed during SXSW in Austin, Texas. The project was done in collaboration with indie music site NewRockStars. Pretty cool. Check out the mix tape and get a free download at www.newrockstars.com.
McCarthyizm rounded out the “High Holidays” with a rousing night at JP Fitzgerald’s on St. Patrick’s Day. Many friends of all ages stopped in for corned beef, Guinness and kickin music. JP’s owner Bobby Brunner, ever the gracious host, added a stirring acapella rendition of Danny Boy. And at one point an old-fashioned, kneeling-down, pop-the-question engagement occurred right in front the band. She said yes through the tears as the whole crowd sang When Irish Eyes Are Smiling. Quite a night!
