. Saturday, March 15th I.M.U. presents ST PADDY'S WEEKEND MADNESS w/ LOS FURIOS & The DREADNOUGHTS @ The Railway Club , 579 Dunsmuir Street . Doors 9pm / $10

If you are in search of some St Paddy's weekend blarney, you will certainly find it here with silver tongued devils delivering debauched tunes that will have you drunkenly swaying and stomping to the music as you gargle green ale and search for a leprechaun whose magical pot will certainly gift you with a multitude of golden pints!

LOS FURIOS deliver an irresistible blend of ska, reggae, and catchy punk with solid, memorable vocals and empowering, danceable anthems that range from head bobbin' slow skanks to all out, full throttle, pedal-to-the-metal ska romps. Featuring a three piece horn section complemented by distinct songwriters and vocalists, Los Furios shine the brightest when seen and heard live. The six piece band rocks, jumps, bumps and dances through set after set creating a party atmosphere that has made them a favorite with audiences. With 11 Canadian tours under their belt and dates on several Vans Warped Tour, Los Furios have shared stages with The Real McKenzies, Fishbone, Bedouin Soundclash, DOA, The Smugglers, The Planet Smashers and many others.

The DREADNOUGHTS - Ball-busting Celt-punk from Vancouver's newest group of drunken misfits, with a shot of pirate-shanty, a shot of Irish melody and a triple-chaser of street punk. The result is a powerful live sound, with whirling fiddles, mandolins and accordions inviting you into a world of drink and debauchery. Imagine Rancid had their tour bus hijacked by a group of inebriated gypsies... and you're beginning to understand. Be sure to come out and catch these young up-and-comers who opened for The Real McKenzies!
