Bodh’aktan’s Great St Paddy’s Day bash
After having unveiled their surprisingly Irish-tasting “3-Captains” beer on the occasion of St Patrick’s day 2013, Bodh’aktan comes back in 2014 with the first annual edition of “Bodh’aktan’s Great St Paddy’s Day Bash,” kicking off on March 8th
and taking the band on a 10-date whirlwind tour around the province of Quebec.
Montreal, February 25th
– the seven pirates of Bodh’aktan will deliver their Celtic punk-folk-rock in the company of several special opening acts, one of which is the legendary group SUROIT from les Iles de la Madeleine.
Anyone who has lived through a Bodh’aktan show will tell you about this band’s great musicianship, insane energy, and overwhelming sense of fun; the plan is to take this energy and transform Quebec’s St Patrick’s day celebrations forever! A province-wide tour in the month of March will take the band from Club Soda in Montreal on the 8th
, to Quebec City’s Imperial Theatre, and on through the Cote Nord, La Mauricie, Le Beauce, Port-Neuf, the Laurentians, Lanaudiere, and even the Saguenay. This is a show not to be missed: Bodh’aktan’s Great St Paddy’s Day Bash is the beginning of a new tradition!
