March Is The Month Of Green March 14, 2011

March is the month of green – and sometimes the end of February too.  Flogging Molly came to the east coast again for their Annual Green 17 Tour, this time playing at the iconic House of Blues at the Showboat casino in Atlantic City, NJ.

The crowd was the usual Molly troupe, guys with news-boy caps, couples on a beer filled night of fun and of course many Irish people.  It was a sea of green in the dimly lit and industrial style music hall.  However, this year the merry Floggers in the crowd seemed a little subdued, less moshing and more swaying.  Maybe it was the venue’s always present security staff.

By the time Dave King began the hearty thump of “Rebels of the Sacred Heart,” the crowd was ready to be deluged with Irish punk dreams of rolling green hills, the sorrow of loss and the immutability of being one’s self.  A high point of the show for me was “Tobacco Island.”  The visuals of swaying palms and the transition to acoustic really set the mood and made a lasting memory.

It was a great night, and a great show.  For many people this band, this tour makes their March, hell maybe even their whole spring.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all, and to all a Drunken Lullaby.

Yes!  We can hardly contain ourselves either!  Flogging Molly’s 7th Annual Green 17 Tour is now making its way across the US and shortly to the east coast!  With the tour off to a fresh start, NVMP is looking forward to the dates at House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ on 2/19 and Terminal 5 in New York, NY on 3/2.  The Green 17 Tour started in 2004 as a count down to St. Patrick’s Day with a performance celebration in each city leading up to the holiday.  Which city is your city?  Check out the cities and venues of the tour below.

If you haven’t purchased tickets yet, I hope you’re blessed with the luck of the Irish, because these tickets won’t be available for long.  To buy your tickets now and for more information, visit www.floggingmolly.com.
