Flogging Molly – Hardly Strictly Bluegrass @ Golden Gate Park

Saturday, October 3rd @ 5:30 pm

Flogging Molly

Founded in Los Angeles in 1997, Flogging Molly infuses punk rock with Celtic instruments – violin, mandolin and the accordion – and they merge blues progressions with grinding guitars and traditional Irish music, the music of vocalist/guitarist Dave King’s youth. “We’re not a traditional band,” explains Dublin-born 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 and rebellion, of struggle and history and protest. Whether it’s a driving anthem like “Black Friday Rule” or the upbeat duet with Lucinda Williams, “Factory Girls”, the band’s only criteria for its music is that it is simple and bone-deep.
