Flogging Molly

In its 15 years, Flogging Molly has grown in size, scope, skill and acclaim, mining an Irish punk sound reminiscent of a less besotted Pogues. The group’s live performances are rousing epiphanies fueled by the resilient blend of punky guitar, trilling violin and ringing mandolin to leaven frontman Dave King’s dark anxious meditations. Whether considering squalid “Life in a Tenement Square” or the nitro-twang nowhere “Man With No Country,” King and company imbue their songs with the kind of passionate spirit that inspires revolution.
