Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, Mariachi El Bronx

When: Tue., June 16, 6:30 p.m. 2015

These bands deserve each other. Flogging Molly, the elder of the two, earned its stripes on the punk circuit, playing Celtic folk with punk abandon, not unlike former peers in Dropkick Murphys. But where the Murphys shed their folk trappings to make hits like “Shipping Up To Boston,” Flogging Molly doubled down on tradition. Gogol Bordello, another Warped Tour folk-punk troupe, made a blitzkrieg bop of Balkan folk. Frontman Eugene Hütz draws more attention than his band’s music. Together, Flogging Molly and Gogol Bordello present European folk traditions warped to marketability—Mumford & Sons, then, in reverse. —Bryan C. Reed
