Crowdsourced: Flogging Molly at Tempe Beach Park

OK, OK, so they may be from Los Angeles, but the Celtic punk rock band Flogging Molly is one of the best bands around to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with. Not only do they play fun, fast, furious tunes, they also know how to party. According to one fan, the band headed to Casey Moore's in Tempe after their concert last night at Tempe Beach Park--how appropriate.

Here's more about the show from some of the thousands fans who checked them out, then posted their thoughts on Twitter--and seriously, if you break your arm at a concert, that's dedication. (P.S. Read our review here.)
