Saturday, June 1, 8 p.m.
If your notion of Celtic music is limited to green glades, leprechauns and flutes, the Dropkick Murphys will change your mind. The American Celtic punk group bears all the telltale signs of an Irish pub band with accordion, bagpipes and kilts, but the Massachusetts troupe plays hard with electric guitar and the kind of vocal rasp that makes you want to clear your throat. The rockin’ group hits the Diamond Ballroom, 8001 S. Eastern Ave., Oklahoma City, with a show at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 1, with guest acts Old Man Markley and the Mahones opening. Tickets are $23-$28 (additional fees apply), available online at www.diamondballroom.net.
