Ever since hearing about how your great-granny Bridget O’Flannaghan-Shaughnessey came to the brave new world with nothing but two moldy potatoes in the pockets of her pinafore, you’ve enjoyed a healthy respect for your Irish roots. Between pub-crawls on Bloomsday and St. Patty’s parade revelry, you understand the importance of celebrating your place in the vast Irish diaspora. Tonight, you’ll continue your shamrock studies (after a soda bread snack) at the Flogging Molly concert. Listening to the bleating Irish-punk group, your whistle wet with drams of Jameson, you’ll soon be lost in the drunken lullabies. Granny is smiling somewhere from her green-gabled heaven!
Sailor Jerry Presents Flogging Molly “Green 17 Tour2012,” Hammerstein Ballroom, 7:30 p.m. Tickets, from $42, available at www.ticketmaster.com.
