Boston’s finest are back in the District: The Dropkick Murphys are playing the Lincoln Theatre on Wednesday, October 25 with a set unlike any other. The band is touring in support of their new album This Machine Still Kills Fascists, an album of acoustic songs with lyrics taken from Woody Guthrie’s extensive archives of unreleased projects. Despite the all-seated venue being a far cry from the typical Murphys stomping grounds, frontman Ken Casey promises the band’s energy will be as present as ever — and promises to play some old favorites. A Celtic punk band founded in Quincy, MA in 1996, the Dropkick Murphys are most famous for their 2005 hit “I’m Shipping Up to Boston,” which, like the new album, utilized unused Woody Guthrie lyrics otherwise lost to time.
