Flogging Molly 

Thursday, March 2 at 8 p.m. Pop's (1403 Mississippi Avenue, Sauget, Illinois)

By combining traditional Irish instruments with punk-rock aggression, LA's Flogging Molly has won over an eclectic fanbase. So it's for the fans, both punks and folkies, that the band has subdivided its tour into two separate shows: Black 17 (i.e., all ages) and Green 17 (21-plus only) gigs. (St. Louis is a stop on the Black tour.) A set list armed to the teeth with 2000's Swagger and newer songs featuring singer Dave King's red-faced rebel yells could coax the Devil himself into a frenzied jig. But as dancing among a crowd of hundreds just isn't as fun without a drink in hand, take the band's motto to heart and grab yourself a Guinness for an authentically Irish "Guinness-soaked music experience."
