  The Mahones stay swingingPDF files may take a moment to load

The Mahones are back to paint the town red with their classic Irish punk attitude, whiskey and damn good music. 


With their 11th album Angels & Devils, released on Nov. 13, the paddy rock ensemble reaches new heights and big sounds that surpass the genius of their last release, Black Irish, which won the International Independent Music Award in 2011 for best punk album.

After the tragedy of the Sandy Hook shooting, the American National Rifle Association held a press release. In it, they placed blame for the shooting on pretty much everything but guns themselves, in an effort to shift the national conversation away from gun control.

Could this be because of gender segregation of jobs, or because of a devaluation of women’s roles? Even with the same academic credentials and experience, women still get paid less than men in the same role. There also exists a huge under-representation of women in the political sphere.

If you’re a fan of the Calgary Flames, you’ve probably heard of Sven Baertschi — the wunderkind prospect hailing from Switzerland who tore up the Western Hockey League during the 2011–12 season.

In the wee hours of Jan. 6, as obsessed NHL fans frantically refreshed Twitter, waiting for news in the wee hours of the morning, a moment of self-criticism must have occurred. Such a fan might have thought, “Am I being used?” 


Now, with the lockout over, fans have moved from armchair lawyers and labour relations experts to armchair GMs and coaches. But amidst fan’s joy and relief of the lockout ending, many are still sour with the way the league and the players handled the lockout.
