March 17, 2018: McGillicuddys St. Patrick’s Party 2018 with Bad Parts and DJ Cheeky Tiki

RSVP: Facebook
See: See: Logan's Pub

Celebrating their 20th year, Victoria’s own McGillicuddys present the Only St. Patrick’s Party that Matters!

Dust off your dancing boots, dig out your leather, apologise to your liver, and get your arse down to Logan’s Tavern of the Damned for night of Celtic punk rock from the McGillicuddys. Opening the festivities, with some great greasy punk rock’n’roll, are Bad Parts. And, throughout the night, DJ Cheeky Tiki will be spinning all your psycho ceilidh faves on the turntable!

This year also marks Shane MacGowan’s 60th birthday - new teeth and surviving to 60, has hell frozen over?! To mark the big day, the McGillicuddys will be playing a special set-within-a-set of MacGowan tunes: look for songs from the Nipple Erectors/Nips, the Pogues, and Shane MacGowan and the Popes to kick off the chaos!

Doors are at 9 PM, with DJ Cheeky Tiki getting the party started right away.

$12 at the door. There are no advance tickets for St. Paddy’s, so get there early!

January 26, 2018: DOA, The McGillicuddys, Keg Killers

RSVP: Facebook
See: See: Logan's Pub

Punk rock legends D.O.A. from Vancouver return to Victoria for the first time in a couple years. Since their inception in 1978, this band has paved the way for a lot of the punk rock bands you see today. From the first album, Something Better Change, to the stellar, Northern Avenger, in 2008 and the newest record, Hard Rain, in 2015 D.O.A. have had something to say. They have always gone against the status quo and pushed the envelope. Several times now band leader Joe Keithley has gotten into politics, being involved with the Green Party to try and make real change in the world. Talk Minus Action Equals Zero.

Victoria's favourite long running celtic punks The McGillicuddys will be warming up the stage for D.O.A. Who doesn't love songs about Irish whiskey done with electric guitar and mandolin?

Starting off the evening will be yet another band of local legends! Yes, that's right KEG Killers will be blasting through tunes about Oak Bay, David Lynch movies and women from outer space.

This will be a sellout for sure, so when tickets go on sale, do not hesitate to purchase them!

July 1, 2017: Unsettling Canada 150+ at the brewery (Crannog Ales) with DOA

RSVP: Facebook
See: See: Crannóg Ales and Left Fields

Politics, punk music, beer and food!

July 1 may be Canada's birthday as a nation (although some of our Newfoundland relatives might not agree with the timeline), but there's a lot else to think about on this day. Take the evening, join us and unsettle yourself! BC's legendary and seminal punk band, DOA is headlining the evening, joined by Victoria celtopunks The McGillicuddies. Speakers and info tables will provide education, and local food trucks will keep everyone fed. Canada didn't just appear out of nothing - there were people and nations already here. Our historic relationship with the indigenous peoples of this land have been full.

Before you check out the fireworks, have a good old-fashioned political party!
