[GOOD THINGS FESTIVAL] Interview with Al Barr (Dropkick Murphys)

After announcing they will be joining Stone Sour and The Offspring at GOOD THINGS FESTIVAL. Casper had an amazing chat with Dropkick Murphys front-man Al Barr about what to expect.


After twenty years, Dropkick Murphys remain bigger than ever, having sold over 6 million albums worldwide. The band continues to sell out venues around the world. They’ve played Boston’s Fenway Park and been personally invited to share the stage with everyone from Foo Fighters to Bruce Springsteen to Mumford & Sons. The group’s single “I’m Shipping Up To Boston”– from 2005’s Certified Gold The Warrior’s Code–has sold nearly 2 million copies. “I’m Shipping Up To Boston,” a song with lyrics penned by Woody Guthrie, gained mainstream notoriety after being prominently featured in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning film The Departed. It can be commonly heard at sporting events and on television as a theme song for many sports teams (even outside of Boston).

Dropkick Murphys will be appearing at the Good Things Festival, and while out of this world, is not a hologram. With key launch sites located in Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, it would seem Australia’s East Coast is all well within range of Good Things Festivals sonic rays.
