Jump around with House of Pain to kick off St. Patrick’s Day!
As a new month approaches, mark your calendars for Friday, March 18 because The Wellmont Theater is welcoming the Irish-American hip hoppers House of Pain to Montclair.
House of Pain is best known for its 1992 infectious and catchy hit single, “Jump Around,” landing the No. 3 spot in the United States, No. 6 in Ireland and No. 8 in the United Kingdom. This hit has been featured on many television and cinema productions, as well as played during numerous sporting events. Some featured film productions include Mrs. Doubtfire in 1993, Happy Gilmore and Black Hawk Down in 1996 and recently in one of 2016’s newest releases, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Television productions include My Name is Earl and American Dad.
Led by rapper Everlast, the group celebrated their Irish-American heritage by wearing green, drinking prodigious amounts of beer and swearing constantly, illustrating quite the reputation for themselves. Although the band broke up in 1996 due to the pursuit of Everlast’s solo career, they reformed in 2010.
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day early, pick up some green beer at the bar! Please remember to drink responsibly.
“[This show] sure sounds like a lot of fun. I think I’ll go just to jump up, jump up and get down,” said Liam Reyes, a Communications major with a love for the music industry.
