    Hi

    If someone says that they did a mindight gig at X for Paddy's Day does it mean they did it ON this day or one day BEFORE this day?

    "Midnight gig" means they started playing at 12 midnight, St. Patrick's Day.

    Would it not mean that the gig started at midnight on St Patrick's Day eve [the night before], since it is for Paddy's Day?

    Yes, I think this is the only reasonable explanation!

    Who's celebrating the midnight BEFORE St. Pat's Day?

    St. Pat's Day has a midnight.

    THAT'S when they performed, "fer sure 'n begorra."

    But if 17 March is your day off, aren't you more likely to have a few Guinesses the night before (so that you can lie in the next day)?
