GroundSwell Music Festival
Mar 16-18
Various times and locations (see listings below)

The stars have aligned for this year’s GroundSwell Music Festival. Celtic-tinged rock landing on St. Patrick’s weekend? It’s too perfect. With three nights of big ticket shows and lots of genres on offer (from Ria Mae’s power-pop to roots music from Rawlins Cross), we’ve put together a playlist to get you jammin’.

Ria Mae closes the fest on Saturday night at Olympic Hall, and we're grooving to this song that scores 12 out of 10 on the Halifamous scale (thanks in part to a Classified verse):

Your daily dose of bagpipe, thanks to Rawlins Cross—that rocks Spatz Theatre Thursday, March 16:

In-Flight Safety dropped an EP last year and this fresh take on a lyric video gives us life—perfect for before they play with Ria Mae and Arsoniste March 18:

The Stanfields will 100% play this song, aka your theme tune for when things get rowdy, when they hit the Olympic Hall stage Friday, March 17:

And, a taste of how Like A Motorcycle rock live, before they open for The Stanfields at Olympic Hall on St. Paddy's with their new guitarist David Casey, who apparently smells great. Like A Motorcycle are fresh from another Euro tour so really I bet they ALL smell great now:
