Flogging Molly and Violent Femmes, along with Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies and Thick rocked Detroit’s Historic Masonic Temple Friday night on September 10.

The show brought a collective of Irish Punk fans and regular ol’ punks in the mix to enjoy the eclectic sounds of this entire lineup. Kicking off the night was an all-female punk band called THICK, followed swiftly by the ever-entertaining super-group of Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies. Fans sang along to the Violent Femmes, who closed out the set with their most famous track “Blister In The Sun,” before getting truly pumped up for the headliner Flogging Molly.

Coming out blazing, Dave King never ceases to amaze me with all the energy. Between moments where he’s not needed on the mic, he’s running from side to side of the stage, Irish jigging, and yelling to the crowd in the least fan-service way possible: You can tell he’s just absolutely enjoying himself, and it rubs off on you.

They mixed their set with standby favorites from their extensive catalog, and it’s an absolute joy to see band members like Bridget Regan breaking out multiple instruments during the set, further rounding out their live sound rather than using recorded instrumental tracks.

No matter what, people leave Flogging Molly shows completely satisfied,  from “Devil’s Dance Floor” to “Seven Deadly Sins.”
