Top o’ the morning to you! Don’t put away your best green outfits from St. Patrick’s Day just yet. Stand, a band that hails from Ireland, will perform at Nietzche’s Thursday (March 18). Four friends from Dublin came together in the 1990s to form the band. Though Irish to the core, Stand considers itself to be of the rock genre,moreso than other Irish rock bands such as the Dropkick Murphys or Flogging Molly. Stand’s newest album, 100,000 Ways to Harvest Hope, was released at the beginning of this month, just in time for St. Patty’s Day. “There’s energy on it and I’m not sure that we’ve ever captured that energy before on a recording,” said guitarist David Walsh of the new album. In addition to a ‘stand’ing yearly gig at Nietzsche’s, the band has another connection to the area—they used the Goo Goo Dolls’ recording studio to record their new album.
9pm. Nietzsche’s, 248 Allen St. (886-8539 / nietzsches.com)
