Flogging Molly at Upstate Concert Hall

When: Saturday, Nov 4, 2017 - 8:00 PM

Founded in Los Angeles in 1997, Flogging Molly has always defied categorization. The infectious originality of their songs is a badge of honor and key to the band's creativity, their urgency. They infuse punk rock with Celtic instruments—violin, mandolin and the accordion—and they merge blues progressions with grinding guitars and traditional Irish music. 

"We're not a traditional band," explains Dublin-born frontman Dave King. "We are influenced by traditional music and inspired by it, but without question we put our own twist on it." Theirs is music of exile, rebellion, struggle and history. The band's only criteria for its music are simple and bone-deep: that it matter.
