Flogging Molly on Austin City Limits
We had a great time at the Flogging Molly Austin City Limits taping last night. The use the new taping venue now, and I do think that, based on the limited experience of 2 tapings in the legendary previous venue, that this one does not quite measure up. Yes, the sound is wonderful, but the lack of bleacher seating (or any other seating for the floor area) and complete lack of line management are a definite negative in my book.
Anyway, the band really rocked and it was our first Flogging Molly concert. Also, the lead singer (Dave King) pointed to my t-shirt and talked a little about during the show!! It was a great Willie Nelson shirt of mine with a large picture of him on the front. Dave said, "There's an Austin shirt! I used to have hair like that!" and a bit more that I don't remember. I hope the editors keep that banter in so I can see it later on TV.
