On the Fly for Feb. 7, 2013

In what’s become a yearly tradition of pre-St. Patrick’s Day revelry at the beach, Celtic-infused punk act Flogging Molly brings its 9{+t}{+h} annual Green 17 Tour back to the House of Blues on Friday, a part of what’s also being billed as HOB’s 20{+t}{+h} anniversary. But hold the phone there, Padraig…The Barefoot Landing venue opened in 1997, and the chain’s first concert hall opened in 1992. OK, well nobody in rock ‘n’ roll has ever been accused of being able to count. In any event, Flogging Molly is a large ensemble by punk rock standards and curiously features lead singer Dave King who used to wail for mid-‘80s metal act Fastway (“Say What You Will). Also on Friday’s bill is U.K.-based Skinny Lister, which blends contemporary pop with traditional British folk and has been described hilariously as “like The Pogues, but with better teeth.” Doors open at 7 p.m. Friday, the show starts at 8. Tickets range from $26 to $63.50. There’s also an after-concert party slated for HOB’s Crossroads restaurant/bar where members of Flogging Molly are to appear, along with a performance by local rockers Shark Legs from 10:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday. There is no cover charge for the after-party. House of Blues is at 4640 U.S. 17 S., Barefoot Landing, North Myrtle Beach. Call 272-3000 or visit
