Virtually nothing can defeat the raw power of rock music, with the possible exception of paper music. Pump your fist with this GrouponLive deal to the 40th Annual St. Patrick's Day Festival at The Abbey Pub. For $14, you get two general-admission tickets and two green beers on Sunday, March 17, at 1 p.m. (a $28 value). Doors open at noon.
A Chicago institution since 1973, The Abbey Pub hosts comedy, music, and special events within its friendly confines. On March 17, Saint Patrick’s Day revelers will be treated to a live soundtrack performed by The Great Whiskey Project, a band known for soulful, fiddle-tinged rock-‘n’-roll shows. During live shows, the quintet stacks their sets with originals, traditional Irish songs, and a wide range of covers from legendary artists such as Elvis, U2, and Johnny Cash. The O'Hare School of Irish Dance, Fitz & the Celts, Shannon Rovers Bagpipers, and Cul an Ti round out the bill of performers. In addition to the concert, the all-day event features traditional Irish dancers, Irish cuisine, and an abundance of green beer.
