Good news and bad news: Bad news: McCarthyizm will be NOT playing Sportsmens on the 1st Thursday in July. Good news: McCarthyizm WILL be playing the first FRIDAY in July! And that happens to be 07/07/17. Sounds like a lucky day to me! And thus, it shall be deemed Luck O’ the Irish Night. To emphasize the point we’ve got our friends from Rochester, 1916, taking that ride down the Thruway to deliver their own brand of high energy Irish rock. McCarthyizm hits the stage at 9 pm with 1916 closing the night, so come on down early, stay late and take an Uber home, bc the party is ON. And if you haven’t heard, the Sportsmens now has AC on the first floor. So you can be cool downstairs or get some open-air on the 2nd floor patio while still seeing and hearing all that happens on stage. Sportos does it again. See ya there!
McCarthyizm will be heading east down the Thruway on Fri Dec 11 for a very special show. Rochester Celtic rockers, 1916, will be celebrating their CD release party at Water Street Music Hall in Rochester, and we are very honored that they’ve asked us to join the bill. This high energy group has taken their name from the Easter Rebellion that occurred in Dublin that same year of 1916. And next year (2016), the 100th year anniversary of that rebellion, the band 1916 will be playing the annual Flogging Molly cruise. These guys know how to celebrate! So come on out and join us. Doors at 7:30. Music starts at 8 pm with Irish Ben. McCarthyizm hits the boards at 9.
