The time has come for Scythian's 2023 Ugly Christmas Sweater Tour! We're kickstarting it with The Southern in the wonderful city of Charlottesville, VA with the amazing Will Overman Band (Appaloosa Alumni) opening! While we may not see snow this far south, there's guaranteed to be loads of eggnog (the good kind), impish little elves sneaking around untying your socks, and the gift of music with friends! Help us spread the holiday cheer and come on out for a jolly good time! Grab your tickets today!


14 Dominick St , GALWAY IRELAND

One of the inspirations for our song "Galway City," the song has become an anthem for over 1,000 trip alumni. "Over at Monroe's they're raising hell" - this is your chance to see what it's all about! This is an EARLY SHOW with doors at 7pm and show at 7:30pm - 10pm, so come ready to DANCE and then still have a full night ahead of you after the show.


13 Carey's Lane, CORK IRELAND

Monday, Monday! NO ONE IS GOING TO WORK!!! We'll be heading the an amazing venue for the first show of the tour. The Pavilion on Carey's Lane is a newly renovated theater which will play host to 135 American's on their first non-jetlagged night of the tour! This art-deco theater is an intimate setting that will make for an amazing night of memories!

Note: the venue is on the second floor. Be sure to wear your SCYTHIAN IN IRELAND Lanyard for entrance to the show!
