The Rumjacks Are Coming to SXSW

Australian Celtic Punk Band The Rumjacks will be at SXSW in Austin, along with other US dates. Everyone at the blog knows I have a soft spot for some good Celtic Rock, and these guys do deliver just that!

They will be kicking off their first ever US tour at the California’s Get Shamrocked festival, (appropriate don’t you think?) , tomorrow  and then moving on through California and Arizona before arriving in Austin.

With their heavy Celtic roots , driving punk rock or even ska/reggae rhythms, well-oiled sing-alongs & choking ballads, this is the band to see live.

“We draw on so many influences, but still it’s important for us to force the bounds of what we already do, play good solid Punk rock with a fat smear of Celtic folk right through it, Hopefully contributing something fresh & substantial that’ll stick around in people’s hearts long after the party’s over..”

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc, I'm an avid vinyl lover and I have the receipts to prove it.
