GIG: Monday night at B.B. King Blues Club & Grille ($30)

For 25 years, Irish singer Larry Kirwan and his band Black 47 have traded in an unlikely -- but potent -- mix of Celtic melodies, hip hop beats, funk instrumentation, and feisty lyricism. The band is calling it quits this year, though, and they’re currently taking a victory lap with songs like “Salsa O’Keefe.” Catch Black 47 at one of their final performances – on Saint Patrick’s Day! They’re at B.B. King Blues Club tonight.
