Alive After Five: Swagger 

When: Wed., June 29, 5 p.m. 2016
Price: FREE

If Park City, Utah-based Celtic rockers Swagger don't compel you into a head-banging jig, you might want to have your adrenal gland checked. It's a big sound filled with frenetic fiddle and driving rhythms that border on punk or ska—all centered on "the expected Irish celebration of drink, mischief and music."

With three studio albums under its kilt, Swagger has kept some illustrious company, playing alongside venerable acts like The Young Dubliners.

It's not all brogue stomping party anthems, though. Swagger prides itself on daring to explore "oppression and take an emigrant's perspective on the virtues and vices of the Irish-American culture."

If you happen to miss the Alive After Five show on June 29, Swagger is set to swing back through Boise for the annual Highland Games, which runs Friday, Sept. 23-Saturday, Sept. 24.
