LIVE REVIEW: Kodaline w/ Gavin James, New York, NY

Just four years old, Kodaline is already at the peak of its game– putting on a tightly-wound, 16-song set list for all the feisty ladies of Manhattan.  The indie-rock Irish quartet has been on the road for the better part of three years now to support their critically acclaimed debut, In A Perfect World, and follow-up album, Coming Up for Air, where they blended emotionally charged and radio-friendly anthems with Euro electronic synths (a…

Irish Films to Watch This St. Patrick’s Day

While some of us around the country are anxiously waiting for spring to arrive amidst piles of snow, the nation’s favorite drunken holiday has snuck up on us and provides us the perfect reason to raise our spirits (pun intended!) Regardless of whether you know the true nature and history of this holiday, St. Patrick’s Day is a day to celebrate all things Irish, to wear all things green and orange, and the only day of the year you can legitimately get a “green beer.” For those of us that…
