Kids take to Irish jigs in free concert

More than 500 people attended the KPBX annual free Kids’ Concert: Celtic Dance Party on Saturday as they enjoyed the sounds and rhythms of Irish band Floating Crowbar.

St. Patrick’s Day might fall on a Tuesday this year, but that’s no excuse to skip out on the celebrations. Looking through the weekend’s live music listings, Saturday night seems to be the best time to go out, drink some green beer and listen to music in honor of your Irish brethren. Both Irish pubs in the downtown area – the venerable O’Doherty’s and newcomer Knockaderry (in the former Sidebar near the county courthouse) – will be open Saturday morning for a long day of Irish-style merriment.

Floating Crowbar lacks Irish blood, but not spirit

It’s the melodies that brought the members of Floating Crowbar to Irish music. The members meandered toward it, some taking decades to get serious about it. And coming together as a group took a while, too. It started with Rick Rubin and Don Thomsen as a duo. Morgan Andersen and James Hunter eventually joined, and they’ve been playing as a quartet for close to six years.
