So coming up very shortly in Somerville there's going to be this huge musical performance that'll involve traffic being diverted for miles around and thousands of people jamming the streets.

No no, besides U2. This Sunday the Ras na hEireann, the annual St. Patrick's Day roadrace, is going to take place. But before it happens, the organizer is going to ask all 4000+ people there to honor the memory of his recently-departed uncle by singing 'Danny Boy'.

4000 people.

I've taken a very small informal poll here at work, and so far no one (including my Irish boss) can remember more than the first line and half of the second one. Not that this will stop anyone on Sunday. Oh no no, I don't think this will slow anyone down at all.
