The Blaggards

The Continental Club will want to stock up on plenty of Jameson and Guinness today for local Irish rockers the Blaggards. The quartet creates a sound akin to The Pogues or, more recently, Flogging Molly, by adding an Irish twist to folk, reggae, rock and country ditties. It’s perfect for drinking and jigging. With Christopher Buckley driving home the Ireland theme with plenty of mandolin and fiddle solos, everyone in the place is sure to be gettin’ their Riverdance on. 11 p.m. 3700 Main. For information, call 713-529-9899 or visit www.continentalclub.com. $10
Fri., Feb. 1, 11 p.m., 2008
