Ticket Giveaway - Saw Doctors - Altar Bar - 3.5.12 - Show Preview - Concert Preview

The Saw Doctors will be making a stop in Pgh next Monday, 3.5 at the Altar Bar. The Irish rock band has been recording and touring since 1986. They are quite accomplished in their native country honing 18 Top 30 singles and releasing 7 studio albums while winning several Irish music awards. They recently released a 60's cover of 'Downtown' featuring original singer Petula Clark. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show plus their latest cd which will be mailed to you. As usual to enter just email us at with your name.

Leo Moran and Davy Carton are the driving force behind the band for over 25 years. The music itself has the sound of homespun charm and quaint imagery that reflects their Irish origins. From a recent interview:

"They call Ireland the land of saints and scholars," Moran suggests. "The Irish definitely have an interest in people, in language, and in coming up with new ways of saying things. Creativity is accepted and respected, and that's especially true in Galway. Everybody you meet is in a play or writing or acting or in a band. I suppose you see other people doing stuff, and they're always around you, and when you like what they're doing, it encourages you to do it as well."

Doors are at 7p with the show beginning at 8p. Tickets are $25 and can be found here. More information about the band are at these links:
