Analysis: O’Malley’s March on the road again

The Celtic governor and his band, O’Malley March, has booked a gig at Rams Head On Stage on West Street in Annapolis Sunday, Dec. 20, and they’ve got appearances Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Avalon Theatre in Easton.

Check out the band’s Web site, and download pics of the gov in muscle shirts. Says a bio of “Martin” — one of “The Boys” — “Raised on the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, educated by the Jesuits and Wolfe Tones, emboldened by Shane McGowan, seasoned by Christy Moore, Martin has played a narrow range of music his entire life: Irish.” The band is “thriving on the momentum of Martin’s own brand of internal, Celtic fusion,” says the blurb.

Is that like “cold fusion,” a source of clean energy for the future? Constellation Energy Group might be interested in hooking up the chief executive to the power grid.

The photos clearly haven’t been updated recently, because O’Malley’s hair is no longer quite so dark or abundant as it was whenever they were taken.
