10th Annual Green 17 Tour with Flogging Molly and special guest Ozomalti
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. Swagger, the band’s first album, transcended everyone’s expectations in 2000. Drunken Lullabies was released in 2002 and certified Gold. In 2004, the band released Within a Mile of Home, and in 2008, Flogging Molly put out Float, a deeply stirring and personal album recorded in Ireland. Through all of this, Flogging Molly—first, last, and always a live band—was touring, playing raucous and adrenaline-fueled shows in bars, pubs, and nearly every major rock festival in North America, Europe and Japan.  Their latest record, Speed of Darkness, was released in 2011.
