The Mahones
From a gigs in Irish pubs to an Academy Award winning movie: The Mahones have come a long way in 25 years. Heralded as pioneers of the Irish punk scene, and internationally recognized as one of the best and hardest working punk outfits around, The Mahones formed on St. Patrick's Day in 1990, and have been working on their own brand of Irish punk ever since. With a working class ethic and a love of classic punk, Finny McConnell formed the band to combine his love of punk rock and his Irish culture. Alongside McConnell are Dom “The Bomb” Whelan, Katie Kaboom, Sean Winter, Sean "Riot" Ryan and a rotating lineup of fantastic musicians.

With nine classic albums under their belt, the band experienced a tremendous surge in popularity upon the release of their 10th album, The Black Irish. It was voted Best Punk Album at The Independent Music Awards (USA), and the band's hit song “Paint The Town Red” was featured in the climactic final fight scene of the 2 x Academy Award-winning film The Fighter.

They are touring this summer in support of their upcoming album, part 2 of their concept album “The Hunger and The Fight” and will be stopping by Vancouver to play the Rickshaw Theatre on Friday, November 27th.
