Punk Rock Opera

The Boston-based Dropkick Murphys are out with their seventh studio album. “Going Out In Style” is filled with odes to family, friends, the working man and fallen soldiers. It’s based on the life of Cornelius “Connie” Larkin, a fictitious creation of band’s bass player, vocalist & co-founder Ken Casey, with author Michael Patrick MacDonald.
