Move over, Dropkick Murphys. There’s a new way to get in touch with your Celtic side this St. Patrick’s Day. And it involves some vintage Larry Bird jerseys, Royale, and a whole lot of jumping around.

Hip-hop trio House of Pain just announced that they’ll be playing Theatre District nightclub Royale on Thursday, March 17, which will take this Boston holiday to greater, even more drunken heights.

Denis Leary called it back in the early ’90s when he invoked St. Patrick’s Day while introducing the “Shamrocks and Shenanigans” music video.

But House of Pain on St. Patrick’s Day? They might have to close Tremont Street down for this, and it’ll give both Southie and the Dropkicks at the House of Blues some fierce competition for Boston’s biggest outburst of Irish pride.

The St. Patrick’s Day gig promises the classic House of Pain lineup of Everlast, DJ Lethal, and Danny Boy, and while the group is best known for 1992 single “Jump Around,” we maintain that later track “On Point” still holds up just as well.

Tickets ($29.50 advance, $32 day of show) go on sale Friday, February 12, at noon via Bowery Boston and Ticketmaster.

Go green, go big.
