Late Night Pick: Black 47

Get your Irish on tonight with Black 47, the NYC based band made up of Irish ex-pats. They'll be on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight at 11:35 PM. During the 90s, I saw Black 47 many times and their raucous brand of rock n' roll always made the pints go down easy. I was stunned to hear that they are calling it quits after 25 years after a final tour, which unfortunately is not brining them to Richmond. If you have Sirius XM, you can listen to Black 47's 25th and last St. Patrick's Day show tonight live from BB King's Blues Club in NYC. I couldn't find out what station they'll be on but you SiriusXMer's will probably have a way to find that out.
