Flogging Molly played in New York City last night on their annual Green 17 tour. This time, the tour featured opening acts The Architects and an artist that’s quickly becoming one of my favorite musicians, Frank Turner. While the bands performed excellently, the concert experience at Hammerstein Ballroom left a lot to be desired.
What better way to celebrate St Patrick’s Day with a new Flogging Molly CD and DVD! Flogging Molly have released live music before but not a full-length concert. The same goes with a full-length concert DVD. Their documentary DVD Whiskey on a Sunday was fantastic and this concert is another example of the band’s excellence. Fans will be treated with a double CD and a full bonus DVD of the same concert. This concert was filmed at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on September 12, 2009. All of their albums are represented here including most of their newest album “Float.”
Nathen Maxwell has been playing bass for the popular Celtic punk band Flogging Molly for over 13 years. Nathen sings here and there for Flogging Molly but it was only a matter of time before he was going to do something on his own. Well that’s not entirely true; he’s not alone on this album. “The Original Bunny Gang” backs him up on this album. Some of the members include his Father on the drums and Matt Hensley (of Flogging Molly) on the concertina and accordion.
