It's St. Patrick's Day. Naturally, you need something to listen to while you sip Guinness and eat corned beef. But you don't want to listen to U2, because -- well, you just don't. So!

For your St Patrick's Day enjoyment, we've compiled a short playlist of songs by Irish artists approved by an actual Irishman. And with no U2. Some of these you've definitely heard before, some of them you haven't. So listen up, and start pouring us a pint:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
