Flogging Molly gets audience on its feet
–Flogging Molly performed at the Vina Robles Amipitheatre on Thursday night.
The Celtic rock group, made up of members Dave King, Bridget Regan, Dennis Casey, Nathen Maxwell, Bob Schmidt, Mike Alonso, and Matt Hensley, cranked out toe tapping tunes that had the audience dancing and jumping. A friendly mosh pit formed in the center of the floor.
The set list was a mix of, “new, old, and very old,” as King put it. The band has released an independent live album titled Alive Behind the Green Door, as well as five studio albums: Swagger, Drunken Lullabies, Within a Mile of Home, Float and Speed of Darkness; and an acoustic/live DVD/cd combo Whiskey on a Sunday.
The night was opened by Chuck Ragan, and English band Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls.
