Flogging Molly and The Interrupters brought their own brand of punk rock to Jacobs Pavilion 

last night while on their co-headlining tour.

The Interrupters were first to take the stage and instantly brought energy to the 1,700 or so fans that were in attendance.  The ska-punk band from Los Angeles consists of three brothers, Jesse (drums), Justin (bass), and Kevin Bivona (guitar) as well as lead singer Aimee Interrupter.   

Fans on the floor were dancing and singing along to every word.  The band themselves were having as much fun on stage as the fans.  Aimee was dancing all over the stage while Kevin and Justin would stand on the small risers at the front of the stage and do jumps off of them throughout the set.

The band played songs from all three of their studio records including, "Family," "On A Turntable," "Broken World" and "Take Back Power."  They also played two songs from their upcoming album In The Wild which is set to be released on August 5th.

Toward the end of the set, they played snippets of three classic punk songs, "Keep 'Em Separated," "Linoleum" and "Ruby Soho" before playing the entire Bad Religion song "Sorrow."

The Interrupters closed their fun, spirited show with their biggest hit, "She's Kerosene."

Flogging Molly, a Celtic punk rock outfit from Los Angeles closed out the show.  Led by vocalist/guitarist Dave King (formally of Fastway), Flogging Molly also brought a high energy performance to the West Bank of The Flats.

This seven piece outfit got things started with a rollicking version of "Drunken Lullabies."  King was all over the stage, briskly walking in circles or taking 4 steps forward and three steps backwards when he wasn't singing.

King  announced that he had turned sixty this past December but he didn't show any signs of slowing down.

"Selfish Man" and the appropriately titled "These Times Have Got Me Drinking" found their way early in the set.

The band is out supporting the soon to be released new album, Anthem and played the first single from the lp, "A Song Of Liberty" which King described as a song dedicated to all the men, women and children who fought for Ireland's independence in 1916.

"Devil's Dance Floor," "Tobacco Island" and "What's Left Of The Flag" were all played with aplomb.

Ending the show was a rousing version of "Seven Deadly Sins."
