Get Ready for some Irish Punk Rock from Chicago from The Tossers

The TossersNorthwest fans of Irish-based punk rock are in for a treat. Chicago’s very own THE TOSSERS are setting their sights for the left coast this October, headlining with special guests CONTINENTAL. With shows across the Sunshine State, THE TOSSERS will also be  heading to the Pacific Northwest. Showcasing their brand of perfect punk rock fury and Celtic folk, this is a tour that gives you a taste of St. Patrick’s Day well in advance.

Coming from the predominantly Irish neighborhoods of Southside Chicago, the Tossers have been expanding the boundaries of contemporary Irish music since the early ’90s. The band chose their name for its derogatory meaning, “throw away.” The term dates to Shakespeare, and depending who you ask it also means commode, drunk, to agitate, disturb, or disquiet.

Although their name may be irreverent, their music is not. The heart of their distinct sound is derived through the melding of traditional Irish and Punk Rock roots. Combining the folk instrumentation of mandolin, fiddle, tin whistle, and button accordion with amphetamine fueled guitar, bass and drums, the Tossers play with a furious edge that teeters between rage and raucousness.

Performing tracks from their latest release ‘The Emerald City’ as well as their classic foot-stomping tunes, THE TOSSERS will be starting the party in San Diego on October 9th and wrapping up in Portland on October 22nd. Join the fun as THE TOSSERS celebrate over 20 years as a band and bring a little piece of ‘The Emerald City’ to a city near you.
