Kevin Devine will transform into Kenny O’Brien and The O’Douls for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the Boston-area and NYC, which BrooklynVegan is proudly presenting. He’ll be playing March 16 at Great Scott in Allston, and early and late shows on March 17 at Mercury Lounge in NYC, and in his words: “It’s gonna be a party, essentially, the kind of punk, uptempo side of what I do with some Celtic instrumentation.” To get a taste of what it might be like, Kevin’s got a newly-recorded cover of The Pogues‘ “The Body of An American,” which premieres in this post. It’s a pretty faithful take on the original, but it also has that unmistakable Kevin Devine touch, and it’s good stuff.

Kevin also put together a (pretty funny) video of himself explaining the reasoning behind the name “Kenny O’Brien and The O’Douls” and what these shows will be all about. He also includes a story about a St. Patrick’s Day 14-hour alcoholic blackout at SXSW. Watch that and listen to the Pogues cover below.

Tickets for the Great Scott show and the early and late Mercury Lounge shows are on BrooklynVegan presale now. PASSWORD = KevinBVine. If you miss out on the presale, you can try again for tickets when the public on-sale begins Friday (12/14) at noon.
