With the Aggrolites in tow for the band's entire fifth-annual Green 17 Tour, Flogging Molly will be returning to the Twin Cities Monday night to play Myth. The tour, which serves as a yearly countdown to the group's St. Patrick's show (this year being held in Chicago), has Flogging Molly making their way across the U.S., still rolling high from the release last year's Float. Always a spirited showcase of whiskey-fueled Celtic pride, Flogging Molly's veracious punk blends nicely with the group's ever-present Irish swagger. The result is a showcase of thoroughbred musicians flourishing through the contrast of guitars, tin flutes, accordions, and whip-crack percussion. Also on the night's bill are the Mighty Stef, straight out of Dublin, Ireland. All ages.
