For those who don’t know Flogging Molly is an Irish-American folk-rock band. As always the band put on a stellar show, with their unique blend of traditional instruments like the banjo, tin whistle, and accordion combined with electric guitars and bass. Lead singer Dave King has a story or an introduction before each song. Everyone booed when he told the audience that this was the last Green 17 Tour, but he went on to say that it meant they were going to play the very best from each of their five albums and they did.
King also introduced band members, told stories of his childhood in Ireland and even pointed out his son in the crowd. The played a very long set including Drunken Lullabies, Life in a Tenement Square, Us of Lesser Gods and Swagger. Flogging Molly is an extremely talented band with great showmanship and tons of onstage energy. This tenth annual Green 17 tour will continue through March 23, ending in New Orleans. After that the band is set to record their sixth album.
