Tuesday To-Do: Continental

Posted By on Mon, Jul 30, 2012 at 8:26 AM

Continental returns to White Water Tavern Tuesday.
  • Continental returns to White Water Tavern Tuesday.

9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern.

White Water Tavern regulars are likely familiar with Continental, the four-piece fronted by former Dropkick Murphys guitarist Rick Barton. Barton formed Continental in 2009, and the group includes his son Stephen Barton on bass, Dave DePrest on guitar and Tommy Mazalewski on drums.

Continental has played the WWT a couple of times in the year and a half or so. The band just released "All a Man Can Do," a full-length follow-up to its debut EP, "Death of a Garage Band." In the band's online bio, the elder Barton described their sound as "a blend of folk, punk and country with a heartfelt message of love, loss, pleasure and pain." That's a pretty spot-on description. The album will probably resonate with fans of such blue-collar punk 'n' rollers as Social Distortion, The Swingin' Utters and the Dropkick Murphys.

Opening the show are local cowpunkers The P-47s.
