Flogging Molly isn't in our database already, so I will have to check them out. I just noticed Witchcraft, but what are the chances that the Swedish metalers are coming over here for a 1-off show. Anyone know if it's them or some other band with the same name?

The Lollapalooza website lists Witchcraft as being the swedish metal band, but it isn't listed on their MySpace in their tour info, so who knows?
