Flogging Molly

Flogging Molly brought the “Green 17 Tour,” an annual holiday celebration of all things Irish, to a sold-out crowd at Oakland’s Fox Theater for the fourth consecutive year.

Flogging Molly is one of those bands that brings the drink out in people and Saturday night at the Fox was no exception; the manic fever of the inebriated slowly built throughout the opening acts and by the time Flogging Molly took the stage to The Who … Dave King hoisting a can of Guinness as a toast before busting out “Another Bag of Bricks” … the floor was a churning mess of bodies, sweat and flying beer.

The band’s backdrop may be the same from the previous year, but the set list was completely re-vamped. Sure, you get your “Paddy’s Lament” and “Requiem” but Dave and they band didn’t stop there … digging deep into their catalog for their 2 hour set and closing the night with “If I Ever Leave This World Alive” which did little to calm the fervor that stretched from the front of the pit to the back of the balcony.
