Massachusetts band raises $100,000 For Marathon explosion victims

Punk band Dropkick Murphys formed in Massachusetts in the ’90s, long celebrating their love for the city of Boston with live albums nodding to Fenway Park and singles with names like “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” and “The State of Massachusetts.” So when two explosions at this week’s Boston Marathon injured dozens of victims, the band members mobilized, doing their part to help their beloved city.
Dropkick Murphys, made up of Ken Casey, Matt Kelly, Al Barr, James Lynch, Tim Brennan, Josh Wallace, and Jeff DaRosa, began marketing a "For Boston" t-shirt on their band’s website, pledging all proceeds from the shirt sales to victims of the bombings, writing, “100 percent of all proceeds from this shirt will go directly to the victims and families of the Boston bombings.” The band was able to reach $65,000 in the first 15 hours of sales, approaching the $100,000 mark soon after.
