Celtic Punk | The Mahones




Dublin-born, Canada-based Finny McConnell is considered by many as one of the main instigators in getting this whole Irish Punk drinking party started, years before bands like Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys kicked the scene wide open. The Mahones is a tight outfit with more of a lean on the Irish music tradition and less on the locomotive and volume that others in the genre use. But, it still manages to kick out the whiskey-fueled jams with speed and a contagious exuberance.

The Mahones perform Tuesday, November 26, 9 p.m., at Abilene, 153 Liberty Pole Way, $15-$20,
