Social Distortion, Flogging Molly, the Devil Makes Three and Le Butcherettes Performing at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica


Concertgoers at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica last night experienced one hell of a show as Social Distortion and Flogging Molly teamed up to deliver a raucous evening that won't soon be forgotten. Social Distortion brought serious swagger to the stage with "I Fought the Law," "Over You," "1945" and "Untitled." "I'm tired of Americans being so quiet...that's not the America I know," said frontman Mike Ness before the band ripped into "Don't Drag Me Down." Social D welcomed members of Flogging Molly to the stage to help sing and play "Sometimes I Do." The band finished out its 40th anniversary show with the hit "Story of My Life." Flogging Molly delivered hits "Drunken Lullabies," "Devil's Dance Floor" and "Seven Deadly Sins," which caused a rowdy circle pit to form and sent crowd surfers toward the stage where frontman Dave King kept the energy at its peak. Guitarist Dennis Casey delivered a never ending supply of high kicks and jumps throughout the band's set. The band also performed the beautiful ballad "A Prayer for Me in Silence," which featured multi-instrumentalist Bridget Regan on vocals. Also on the bill, gritty bluegrass band the Devil Makes Three showcased their lightning fast picking and whiskey-infused harmonies. Le Butcherettes kicked off the evening with 25 minutes of feral femme energy that erupted across the stage. (Amber Patrick)
