Paint the town green with Ticketfly


Mar. 14, 2016


We’ve been hit with the luck of the Irish. This St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve got an abundance of awesome concerts and parties across the country, holiday-related and otherwise. So put on your favorite green T, house a plate of corned beef and cabbage, and get ready. You’ve got some pinching—and dancing—to do.
