Celtic rockers Flogging Molly and guest L.A. Latin world fusion rockers Ozomatli took to the stage at Boulevard Pool in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Saturday night to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Weekend.

The concert opened with Ozomatli, who energized the outdoor audience above the Strip before Flogging Molly lit up the stage with their punk rock and festive Celtic instruments.

The boisterous band performed a raucous, adrenaline-filled show that had their fans screaming along to hits including “Every Dog Has Its Day,” “No More (Paddy’s Lament)” and “Revolution.”

The Saturday night stop was part of Flogging Molly’s “10th Annual Green 17 Tour.”
