How I Figured out Larry and His Flask are Getting Huge 

OK, so I'm pretty damn sure that Larry and his Flask are opening some East Coast shows for Dropkick Murphys.

How do I know this? Here's the story:

Central Oregon's own acoustic Americana-meets-punk band is pretty much always on tour - the exception being their recent stay in town where they've been playing a string of local shows, including a Wednesday night residency down at Mountain's Edge.

So it wasn't a surprise to see that their MySpace page now features a long list of shows as far off as Virginia, keeping the boys on the road well into mid-March. But then I started noticing the venues they were playing: House of Blues (Atlantic City, Dallas and Orlando), Austin's famed Stubb's and a few other high-profile names. These are big rooms - larger than the clubs, bars and living rooms LAHF has made a career out of playing for the past several years.

So, in snooping around these venue's websites, it soon became clear that each LAHF date corresponded with an announced Dropkick Murphys date. So yes, it seems that our very own Larry and His Flask are an opening band for a stretch of the Dropkick Murphy's St. Patty's Tour.

The ever-elusive men of the Flask didn't get back to me by press time, but their blog mentions a big band that they're opening for on the East Coast, so this looks pretty solid. And it all makes sense, given that LAHF opened for Dropkick's sold-out show at the Midtown last November.

Damn, I should have been a detective. At least I would have gotten a trench coat out of the deal.
