St. Patrick's Day >> is this Sunday and that means several things. Everyone will be wearing green, drinking green beer and will be super hungover on Monday. But there's something else that us Arizonans always look forward to on this day and that's a huge festival in Tempe headlined by Flogging Molly whose annual show has become a staple in celebrating green day in the desert.
The punk rock Celts will be wrapping up their 2013 GREEN 17 tour right here in Tempe to commemorate the day everyone is Irish. I'm not quite sure why we're so lucky to have the face of Irish rock celebrating here in the valley year after year other than a unique heat-treated energy that only we collectively share. That and perhaps Lucky Man Concerts is not just a clever name.
Along with Flogging Molly the festival at Tempe Beach Park will also feature Pepper, Anti-Flag and a few other shredders. Tickets can be purchased online via Lucky Man and I highly recommend this move because ticket lines at the door in previous years have been super insane plus your foresight is rewarded with a $5 discount.
