Over the past 25 years, Flogging Molly has cemented their legacy as a Celtic punk institution capable of transcending genres and generations of listeners. The iconic band consists of Dave King (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, bodhran), Bridget Regan (violin, tin whistle, vocals), Dennis Casey (guitar, vocals), Matt Hensley (accordion, concertina, vocals), Nathen Maxwell (bass guitar, vocals), Spencer Swain (mandolin, banjo, guitar, vocals) and Mike Alonso (drums, percussion). Starting off as the houseband for Molly Malone’s in Los Angeles, Flogging Molly has since toured across the globe and garnered a loyal following. The riotous debut “Swagger,” was followed by five additional studio albums that showcased their hard-hitting punk roots and nuanced folk influences. With numerous television appearances under their belt, a sold-out Salty Dog Cruise through the Caribbean and a yearly St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Los Angeles, Flogging Molly has remained a punk scene staple that has also enjoyed profound mainstream success. The band has continued their unstoppable momentum with the release of their seventh full-length album, “Anthem,” via Rise Records.
Joining Flogging Molly is another titan of punk rock – Anti-Flag. Forged in Pittsburgh, Pa. nearly 30 years ago, the band remains relevant as ever with their unapologetic sound and raw, unfiltered critiques on the failings of the modern political landscape. While their early material was rooted in fast, anthemic and visceral punk rock with classic albums such as “Die for the Government” (1996) and “For Blood and Empire” (2006), Anti-Flag has brought the rock back into punk rock with later records including “American Fall” (2017) and “20/20 Vision” (2020).
British folk band Skinny Lister will also take the stage alongside the industry veterans. Since forming in 2009, the band has traversed folk circuits and festivals across Europe and North America, igniting mosh-pits alongside legendary names such as Dropkick Murphys, Frank Turner and Flogging Molly. Their fifth studio album “A Matter Of Life & Love” is out now on Xtra Mile Recordings. Featuring the singles “Like It’s The First Time,” “Bonny’s Eyes,” “A Matter Of Life & Love” and shanty track “Damn The Amsterdam,” the album entered Top 10 in the Official Indie Album Breakers Chart and No. 29 in the Indie Album Chart. Doors open at 7 p.m.
