Fast-paced dancing, rowdy sing-a-longs, a parade and a pint or five - the Irish have always known how to party. That's why we thought that this St Patrick's Day who better than The Pogue Traders, the finest Pogues tribute band in the land, to see in St Paddy's Day 2019.
It's not The Pogue Traders who describe themselves as the UK's best Pogues tribute band - that's what The Pogues' own drummer Andrew Ranken said about us; and we are delighted to be backed by The Pogues who recently posted: 'London, Go see these blokes!'
'I'll come straight to the point: The Pogue Traders are absolutely fantastic. Seriously, if you ever see these guys and leave without an ear-to-ear grin spread across your chops and a song in your heart, stop and check your pulse - you may very well be dead.'
