Christian McNeill’s 5 things you shouldn’t say to an Irish person living in Boston

Ireland-to-Boston transplant Christian McNeill of Sea Monsters has covered a lot of ground as a musician. He began by working out his angst with the hard-rocking Irish band Schtum in the ’90s and then moved on to fronting the “groovy and introspective” Hybrasil and singing with the acclaimed Orchestra Morphine.

McNeill celebrates the release of his first album with Sea Monsters, “Everything’s Up for Grabs,” with two shows, Friday and Saturday, at Precinct in Somerville, the band’s home for three years in a popular Sunday night residency.
