Besides New Year’s Eve, there is arguably no bigger pressure to go out and sully your family’s name than St. Patrick’s Day. Thankfully there’s a wealth of opportunities this weekend with CelticFest (celticfestvancouver.com) events, including local heroes The Town Pants March 15 at Venue and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade March 17, 11 a.m. Then there’s Spirit of the West performing their annual call of duty March 16 at the Commodore. But if discerning debauchery and revelry is your bag, you can’t go wrong with Shane’s Teeth. The Pogues tribute band named after singer Shane MacGowan’s famously derelict chompers staggers across the WISE Hall stage March 16, 8 p.m. Tickets at Red Cat, Highlife Records and the WISE Lounge. More info at wisehall.ca or by calling 604-254-5858.
