Ash Go Cover Crazy

Ash performed covers of “Teenage Kicks” and “Whiskey in the Jar”, the Irish traditional tune made famous by Thin Lizzy, in New York on March 17th. The trio played an intimate show in honour of St. Patrick’s Day at the Music Hall Of Williamsburgin Brooklyn, making their way through a lengthy set comprising of a selection of material from their back catalogue as well as their latest album Twilight of the Innocents, which Tim Wheeler said he hoped will come out on in North America soon.

“We’re just back from Japan and are totally jet-lagged and tripping,” cheery frontman Wheeler told the crowd “but that seems appropriate for St. Patrick’s Day.” Acknowledging the vast Irish contingent in the crowd, Wheeler said “It’s nice to be among our own today.” Returning for a five-song encore, he told the crowd “We’re from a town called Downpatrick in Northern Ireland where Saint Patrick is buried,” before playing “Uncle Pat”. The full set was as follows:
