Page 4 of 4

Keltic Cowboys at Rosie McCaffrey's Irish Pub

While it's true that you can catch these long-running Irish rock faves, who have been working around the Valley for the better part of two decades now, during weekend gigs at most metro Phoenix pubs, the fivesome led by vocalist/banjo player Frank Mackey seems to really kick things up a few dozen notches during the annual St. Pat's appearance at Rosie's. You'll have plenty of opportunities to catch the Cowboys performing their signature song "Kiss My Irish Ass," this weekend, as they're doing back-to-back-to-back performances at 9 p.m. on both Friday, March 15, and Saturday, March 16 (both are free) followed by a headlining appearance at the pub's main event of the year on Sunday, March 17. A $10 cover is required for the latter gig. -- Benjamin Leatherman

Saturday St. Patty's Day Block Party at Craftsman Court

Hard rocker James Durbin and '90s alternative radio hitmakers Lit will headline this year's edition of Craftsman Court's annual outdoor St. Patrick's extravaganza on Saturday, March 16. Local DJs and Valley bands like The Black Moods, Good With Grenades, The Wednesday Machine, Black Bottom Lighters, and Grain of Truth will provide support on two different stages. Patrons will also have access to three bars (Dos Gringos, Rockbar, and Blitz), various food and beer vendors, and plenty of St. Pat's swag. Gates open at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10.
