If you’d rather spend your St. Patrick’s Day with big guitars and groove pockets than bagpipes and penny flutes, head down to the Blind Pig on March 17 for a dose of rock and roll with Electric 6.

The band’s genre-dabbling and use of synthesizer, horns and tongue-in-cheek lyrics have spawned a cult following among fans of Andrew W.K., Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal.

The six-piece Detroit-based band gained notoriety in 2003 with their disco-garage rock infused hits “Danger! High Voltage!” and “Gay Bar.” Since then they’ve come in just shy of releasing one full length every year. Their most recent effort, ‘Fresh Blood For Tired Vampyres,’ debuted in October 2016 and was hailed by critics as “back to basics” record.
