This past year has seen the rise of the Black Hippy crew from Los Angeles and the A$AP Mob from New York. Closest to home is Danny Brown's Bruiser Brigade from Detroit.

Written by Dwayne Hoover | Thursday, 20 December 2012 16:37 |

People call it Celtic punk, but what Flogging Molly brings to the stage really defies the idea of any sort of conventional label.
