The Dirges made their Metro Detroit debut as part of the “Boondock Saints 10th Anniversary” show at The Crofoot Ballroom earlier this year. The traveling show brought together the film’s writer/director Troy Duffy, along with cast members, soundtrack artists and fans for a wildly successful all-star celebration of the hit cult movie. “The Dirges embody everything the brothers MacManus are about: Irish, ass kicking, anti-authority punks!” explains Duffy.
The Dirges have three songs featured in the “Boondock Saints” sequel “All Saints Day” and four songs on movie’s the best-selling soundtrack; including a cover of The Skids “The Saints are Coming”. The band’s hit “Better Days” can also be heard on “The Boondock Saints 2” soundtrack, which has been on the Amazon MP3 Best Selling list for three months.
Having shared the stage with some of the world’s top Irish rock bands including Flogging Molly, The Pogues’ Spyder Stacey and The Briggs, The Dirges are sure to bring a rollicking night of live music and fun galore to The Pike Room!
