Pick Of The Day (Tomorrow Edition): The Mahones

According to legend (or at least Wikipedia) this Irish-Canadian punk band was formed in Kingston on St. Patrick’s Day in 1990. But according to the Pump Roadhouse’s website, the band is currently in the midst of a 25th anniversary tour. So the math, from one perspective or another, doesn’t add up.

  1. They played at the Blarney Stone like 3-4 times in the mid-90s. Stoaters, Mahones, Captain Tractor, Great Big Sea… Then there was the Regina guys, one on guitar, tall lanky man on some type of Irish drum. Good thing the Travelodge imploded the Blarney Stone for 10 years of non-performance by Johnny Spanks, whatever it was called. Now it’s a decent pub again but no music.
