The Cornhusker

September 17th, 2014

Hey Gang,
Did you know the Killigans recorded a version of the classic football song “The Cornhusker” by Robert W. Stevens?! Well, we did, and it’s sparking a lot of … conversation on-line. Some people like it. Some people hate it. Some people haven’t heard it yet. OMG! Internets!

well- You can go to Bandcamp and hear it and buy it for a buck!

Check it out now! Yay hooray! Then go onto some comments section of some webpage and tell people about it!

Facebook it to Bo Pelini!

Hey guys we are back in Lincoln at the Zoo Bar Saturday September 13th for an early show (6-9) also featuring Harley Graves. We have a boatload of fresh merch and all our old albums and all that as well. Please come down and hang with the band and get a good start to your Saturday night!

10th ANNIVERSARY!!

March 4th, 2014

On March 15th, the killigans will be celebrating St Patricks day in style.  This marks our 10th year doing this show, and our 10th year as a band.  We want to celebrate by offering one hell of a night.  Iron Brush Tattoo (Lincoln NE) is sponsoring the event with some great giveaways, DJ Dan DTOUR! will be keeping the night moving between sets with his vast array of punk rock.  We have Halfwit and Mezcal Brothers hopping on as well to help us tear up the stage.  As always, look for this to be our biggest local show of the year, complete with traditional covers, Pogues covers, free stuff, unneccessary props, singalongs and who the hell knows what else could happen.  I can say with a fair amount of certainty that there will be a limited edition shirt for sale at this show as well as a fresh restock of “Another Round for the Strong of Heart”.  Watch for a YOUTUBE commercial about the show later this week/weekend. 

If you want to RSVP to the show, please go here:

In other news, look for us in Grand Island at the Glass Bar on April 4th, and in Denver at 3 Kings Tavern on April 5th, more info TBA.
