With lead singer/songwriter Dave King hailing from the Emerald Isle, the bands music is most aptly described as LA-based Celtic punkbut the raucously entertaining Flogging Molly does have an OC connection. Ten years ago, when Flogging Molly felt lucky to play a side-stage on the Warped Tours West Coast Swing, the band held a Monday-night residency at Lindas Doll Hut, the legendary, if ridiculously tiny, Anaheim roots joint (which, now the Doll Hut, is also hosting a great show today). And though they now boast four records and multiple world tours under their belts, theres still a big ol dose of dive bar left in the seven-member ensemble. Be ready for a sweat-inducing, ass-quaking snarl of an evening heavy on songs from Flogging Mollys 2008 disc, Float , which wasby fartheir biggest success to date.
