If The Pubcrawlers aren't the perfect soundtrack to a rowdy, drunken night out (and the morning to follow) then nothing is. Whether you're listening to them on a CD or, even better, live (as long as you don't mind going home wearing more beer than you've consumed), their unique, high-energy, "throw-your-fist-in-the-air-and-sing-along" mix of traditional Celtic drinking tunes and melodic punk rock will have you throwing down on the dancefloor whether you mean to or not! With songs of friendship & fighting, love & loss, damnation & redemption - and a few pratfalls along the way - The Pubs guarantee a rollicking, rowdy good time.
Starting almost five years ago with the meeting of three complete strangers in a Dover, New Hampshire pub, The Pubcrawlers quickly grew to a seven-member crew of friends and family on the shared dream of local fame, free beer and maybe, just maybe, making a record one day. None of the members actually expected to get any of those things but, against all odds, word began to spread and, on the strength of their uncompromising DIY ethics and an early demo that they now pretend doesn't exist, The Pubcrawlers soon started seeing their name popping up in blogs and message boards all across the intertubes. Five years later, the band, with somewhat confused looks on their faces, realized that they were up to 8 members and had managed to carve out a solid niche for themselves in the folk/punk world, helping to carry on the tradition coined many years ago by the legendary Pogues. Those five years have seen the band play countless shows across the Northeastern United States, receive heavy radio play throughout the US, Europe and Japan, win several musical awards, record a best-selling full-length album, become a favorite staple of several podcasts around the world, appear on several internationally-distributed compilations, travel to the UK where they shared the stage with a veritable "who's who" of legendary punk acts and current favorites at the world-famous Wasted/Holidays In The Sun festival and, most recently, appear in a semi-headlining slot at the annual ShamRockFest in Washington DC where, along with the likes of Flogging Molly and The Street Dogs, they performed for an audience of 50,000 people.
