"Okay, here's the info: we're busy working on our new album so we won't be playing any shows up until the St Patrick's Day weekend. We'll be once again playing all ages shows at the Avalon Ballroom in Boston, MA on Saturday March 15th and Sunday March 16th. Tickets go on sale next friday (November 29th). Starting next friday we'll also have an EXCLUSIVE link to purchase tickets online (the general public won't be able to purchase tickets until well after the New Year) as well as info on the Boston Bruins/Florida Panthers Saturday afternoon (March 15th) game, info on the annual St Patrick's Day parade on Sunday afternoon (March 16th) and Boston area hotel info.
We had a real good time last year. If you came last year or heard the live album and want to check it out for yourself, come and help make the DKM 2003 St Patrick's day weekend the best one yet."
