The fantastic double bill of Rancid and Dropkick Murphys performed at WaMu Theater on August 16th. Their co-headlining Boston to Berkeley Tour took them literally from Boston (Dropkick Murphys’ home) to Berkeley (Rancid’s home), and all other points in between. Next up, Dropkick Murphys head to South America and France in the fall for shows (oh that must suck! get that sarcasm?), while Rancid recently appeared on Conan and some of the band were made honorary captains of their local MLS soccer teams. Each band has made their massive presence known in the punk music genre, and we’re so thrilled we got to cover this show. It means a lot.
