Rancid, Dropkick Murphys

Punk rock fans, this show's for you. Ska punkers Rancid, Celtic punk rockers Dropkick Murphys with ska revival band The Selector and hardcore punk performer Kevin Seconds will take the stage at Denver's Sculpture Park at 5:30 p.m. Friday. And if you can't call to mind the Dropkick Murphys without hearing "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" - the theme from the movie "The Departed" - you're not alone. Tickets: $39.95, axs.com.
