Four years have passed since The Real McKenzies made an album but after their most recent release, Westwinds, their tour is highly anticipated. This bagpipe-playing punk rock group has tour dates all over the U.S. and UK this year. They’ve shared the stage with NOFX, Flogging Molly, the Misfits, and more.

On Saturday, June 9, they play at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia with Mean Streets and The Missiletoads. Doors are at 7 p.m. and tickets are $15. Both venues are 21+.
