Flogging Molly Kills It In Indy

The Sun was just a distant glow at 9:45 when the house lights went down at The Lawn at White River State Park in Indy. The cheering crowd was anticipating an old friend on this beautiful evening. The speakers crackled with the vocals of a traditional Irish folk song when Dublin-born Dave King, stepped from the fog and up to the mic. Flogging Molly has had a following like this since they were formed in 1993 in Los Angeles. Taking their namesake from a pub named Molly Malone’s, the band set off to produce a sound filled with rock, punk and traditional Celtic music. A rare blend indeed. King and the band have never been one to bow to the mainstream, but yet have sold over a million and a half records throughout the years. With a loyal following at every tour stop, it must be satisfying for this group to stand on the stage and look out over a sea of fans knowing they have something that most younger bands can only dream of. And that is success. I have no idea as to the monetary success this band seen, but when I see a band and it’s fans connect like I did on this night, there is no doubt that there is wealth beyond imagination. As part of the Live Nation Concert Series, below is a photo gallery of their Indianapolis Performance.
