In 2020, WE all thought this pandemic would be over by now. That we all would’ve easily returned to normal life by 2021. Truth be told nothing much has really normalized. Some states are allowing live music shows while some remain in lockdown. Last year my St. Patrick’s Day was ruined by Covid-19 and a snowstorm tried to ruin it in 2021. (Lucky for me St. Patrick’s Day is a few days and the weather appears to be getting better)

If you know me (Skabones) St. Patrick’s Day is my Christmas Day. It’s family tradition that I plan on passing down to my future little Skabrats. Crimson Riot (Las Vegas) a band that normally releases excellent punk tracks, released a gigantic surprise track, ‘St. James Gate’. The track refers to the historically important St. James Gate in Dublin, Ireland.

At first I thought this has to be a cover of a traditional Irish folk song, but I couldn’t locate it anywhere on the magic Google machine. It does sound a bit like, ‘A Man You Don’t Meet Everyday‘, but I think is more of Mandela Effect than anything. This is a true and beautiful original track. This single will be on their next album release, “It Took An Apocalypse “. I’m really looking forward to it!

Congrats to Crimson Riot for capturing the essence of Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day! Check out the video below.
