The Dropkick Murphys-- Sound Academy

With hard punk having been all but absorbed by other soft subcultures it is becoming an oddity to enter a venue and witness a mohawked twenty something woman spitting and clawing at security as they hauled her out of the club.  With more consistency, concert halls are filled with the waxen faces of stationary hipsters, illuminated by the sickly glow of Iphone screens. But, on September 15, the Sound Academy did not feel like a 2010′s Toronto venue when, with their signature spit, sweat and swagger, the Dropkick Murphys hit the stage.
