10th Annual Green 17 Tour with Flogging Molly/The Drowning Men

When: Tue., March 4, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Flogging Molly’s blend of banjo, fiddle and tin whistle with the high-octane buzz saw guitar and driving bass and drum is truly original and different. The seven-member group has attracted a diverse base of all ages. Its influences range from the likes of the Dubliners and Luke Kelly on one end to The Clash and Johnny Cash on the other. King, who had been in ’80s heavy metal band Fastway, left Europe to strike out on his own in the early ’90s and landed in Los Angeles. Flogging Molly began in Los Angeles back in 1997, quickly becoming a house band of sort at local water hole Molly Malone’s. The band’s most recent release, 2011’s Speed of Darkness was released on the group’s new start-up label Borstal Beat Records. The fifth studio effort shed its on light on the plight of the industrial recession in Detroit, where lead singer Dave King and wife Bridgette Regan live part of the year. (Mark C. Horn)
