House of Pain: Back from the dead?

House of Pain: Back from the dead?

On hiatus for the last 13 years, Irish-bred rap group House of Pain returned for a one-night performance at the Roxy on St. Patty’s Day.

Instead, the audience received yes energetic, but not a long-lasting impression of this once ground-breaking group.
