PUNK | 1916 

It seems to me that a lot of bands that Irish up their music wind up crushing it in the blend. The more traditional instruments that are incorporated to give the band a rooted authenticity get mercilessly bulldozed. But not in the case of Rochester's 1916; this band wails in a cross-genre kind of way, taking traditional instruments, like the mandolin, and letting it shine with the loud guitar and fervent vocal parade. Tons of beer-swillin' fun.

1916 plays with Gavin Barry and The Muckers on Saturday, September 3, at Flour City Station, 170 East Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $5.;
