While we were updating our site, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones announced Hometown Throwdown 18. The shows will be happening on December 26th, 27th and 28th at the House of Blues in Boston (of course). Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 10am so rise and shine and get those tickets plaid rudies!
The Bosstones said in their newsletter:
It is our great pleasure to share the master plan for Hometown Throwdown 18. Once again we’ll be taking over Boston’s palatial House of Blues for three nights but this time we’re getting help from friends we met long ago at Kenmore Square’s infamous subterranean Rathskeller club. We’ll be Throwing Down this year with groups that literally built Boston’s underground music scene while paving the way for future generations and inspiring countless bands including the BossToneS. Garage punk legends The Real Kids, Rat regulars The Neighborhoods and a special reunion from Boston’s beloved melodic punk band The Outlets anchor this year’s lineup. To kick off the festivities we’ve got our pals Stranglehold, New Hampshire’s finest wise-ass punks the Queers and the best rock and roll band to ever strap on guitars AND buckle up shoes: the riotous Upper Crust.
Dicky Barrett says: “If you weren’t there back in the day, here’s your chance to get as close to the full Rat experience as we can possibly provide. The sights, the sounds, the smells, if you will. If you were there, then welcome back!”
Jimmy Harold, owner of the Rat says: “So I walk out the front door of the Rat on a Saturday afternoon and on the patio low and behold this band has taken over my patio with plaids and pugs. I say to myself who’s running this place?”
All shows are all ages!
Tickets go on sale Saturday, September 12 at 10am EST
