Go green at ShamROCK 2015 downtown

Get your jig on at the 21st annual ShamROCK event Saturday, March 14 in the Gaslamp Quarter. From 4 p.m. to midnight, ShamROCK 2015 will transform downtown into an urban, super chic version of the beautiful rolling hills of Ireland as the streets are covered over with 80,000 square feet of Astroturf. Presented by Bud Light, Jameson Irish Whiskey and The Field, ShamROCK 2015 will recreate an Irish pub in the streets and rock the streets with live entertainment. Three stages will be set up for the event. Jesse Marco, Rock it Scientists, DJ G-Roy, Fresh One, Deejay O and DJ Big Dude will be featured on the Luck of the Irish Stage, located near Fifth Avenue and G Street. On the Clover Stage, attendees can rock out to Hot Mouth, Kristina Sky, Adam Auburn, Brady Spear, Beefam, Huy Believe and DJ Engage. Live bands will be featured on The Pub Stage, including Sligo Rags, which was named one of the top acoustic bands in Los Angeles by Folkworks Magazine. The dynamic ensemble offers Celtic folk music with a bluegrass attitude. Also appearing on The Pub Stage is The Fenians, Ass Pocket Whisky Fellas, The Fooks, The Shamrockers and the Down's Family. The Pub Stage will be located next to the Irish pub. General admission is $35 when purchased through Thursday, March 5, and increases to $40 from Friday, March 6, to Friday, March 13.
