The 9th Annual Green 17 Tour!
Crossed #56 (go to a rock concert) and #119 off my list by seeing Flogging Molly at Green 17 on St. Paddy’s Day.
See? Lots of green and a leprechaun. The leprechaun had a little pot of gold coins that he was handing out. It was funny to watch, a few of the drunker concert goers couldn’t figure out where the shiny chocolate coins were coming from. The totally smashed people didn’t realize they were chocolate and not real gold until it started melting.
The Wiley One opened. I’m pretty sure they were the only band that my brother actually liked. Jared and the Mill followed and I am so glad I had the chance to hear them play! They’re a local band, but I’d never heard of them before. They were fantastic! Then there were the Donots from Germany, Anti-Flag (shit got super crazy!!), and Pepper. Reggae/SKA really isn’t in my Top 10, but they were good.
And finally…the moment I have been waiting 6 years for…FLOGGING MOLLY!
I had some video I was going to post here, but unfortunately Shiny, Alonso and YouTube can’t seem to cooperate at the moment and nothing is upload from my phone to my computer. And when it does, it won’t upload from my computer to YouTube. It is a vicious cycle.
So…until that gets sorted out…here’s a video someone else uploaded!
All I can say is, it was almost worth the 6 year wait. I probably won’t do that again though. The next chance I get, I’m going to another concert.
