The Fenway – March Music Spotlight




March 11 – Museum of Fine Arts
Tanya Tagaq presents Nanook of the North
It’s Cold Out There

Tackling the controversial 1922 film “Nanook of the North,” Arctic-born avant-garde composer, Tanya Tagaq, reinterprets the narrow-minded film with more modern ideals and a soundtrack that merges the silent film with the status quo.


March 15-18 – House of Blues
Dropkick Murphys
This Party Is Green 
Every year, the Dropkick Murphys host a series of live shows around St. Patrick’s Day. This year the multi-day event culminates in a Boxing Match and special Dropkick Murphys acoustic set on the 18th. You’re going to want to catch them then because our favorite Celtic rockers will be shipping up to Belgium soon after.


March 25 – House of Blues 
At the Drive In
At the House of Blues
After a nasty break up in 2001, the key members of post-hardcore band At The Drive In would go on to form the experimental prog-rock band Mars Volta soon after. With high profile reunion shows in 2012 and the eventual dissolution of Mars Volta, At the Drive In has reformed again. Expect a new record and a new beginning to the turbulent, yet triumphant past of one of the first great bands of the 21st century.


March 29 – House of Blues
Richard Ashcroft 
Bittersweet, But Probably No Symphony
Best known as the voice behind the Verve, Richard Ashcroft has been hard at work since the band called it quits three different times since 1999. Releasing five records since 2000, Ashcroft is in town to support last year’s great offering, “These People.”
