I'll add here that on St. Patrick's Day they are playing BB Kings on 42nd
Street in NYC. I was just there for The Holmes Brothers and Buckwheat
Zydeco and it's a great room for a show. There's great dance floor before
the stage (which should be open for Altan as it was for Buckwheat) and would
be a great place to spend night.
All the best,
