Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater, or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $16, you get one premium reserved admission (rows H–P) to The Saw Doctors on Saturday, March 5, at Penn's Peak, located in Jim Thorpe (a $32 value, including tax and facility fee).
Recipients of the Meteor Ireland Music Award's 2008 Lifetime Achievement Award, the five-piece Irish rock band The Saw Doctors attack the stage with a musical vigor that turns concert-goers into concert-stayers and have created an international following of tapping toes and envious guitars. Amid lofted arena ceilings and rustic woodwork, raucously bob your head as the band plucks and toots their musical vessels to tracks from their latest album, The Further Adventures of The Saw Doctors, as well as their well-known hits, including "I Useta Lover" and "About You Now". From the premium reserved area, patrons can sing along with lead singer Davy Carton, shout in approval of epic guitar solos, and show off their shredding air-accordion chops.
Overlooking the expansive peaks and valleys of the mountains below, Penn's Peak enthralls eardrums with myriad musicals of all types throughout the year, having hosted artists from Styx to Peter Frampton to Kenny Rogers. Housed in a lodge-themed exterior outfitted with twin patios, oversized glass windows, and wood paneling, Penn's Peak maintains an elegant yet outdoorsy aesthetic, akin to a pedicured lumberjack. With admission, patrons can halt hunger pains brought on by dance overload at Roadies Restaurant and Bar or guzzle down a cold one at the Coors Light Lounge.
The Saw Doctors received the Meteor Ireland Music Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2008. They have also been mentioned in USA Today. The Saw Doctors have a five-star average from Ticketmaster reviewers.
