It’s an annual tradition and the perfect way to end one year and begin a new one: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones Hometown Throwdown. The ska-core band known for hits like “The Impression That I Get,” “Where’d You Go?,” and “Someday I Suppose” has always called Boston home. And for the 14th year in a row, the three night throwdown is now a concert series of epic proportions.
Despite tonight’s inclement weather and the parking ban in the City of Boston after 3PM, the concert will proceed tonight. Parking is available adjacent to the venue and public transportation is also an option for the dir-hard fan. Subsequent shows are scheduled for Monday, December 27 and Tuesday, December 28 all at the House of Blues on Lansdowne Street in Boston.
As always, the band has lined up a stellar cast of opening bands for each night. Tonight features the F.U.s and the We Are The Union. Monday night’s show showcases the talents of H2O and The Faltliners. The wrap up show on Wednesday has Less Than Jake and DYS.
As of this writing, tickets are still available for all three shows and the Bosstones are promising their best throwdown to date full of favorites and new surprises to keep the debauchery and revelry at an all time high.
Pre-game before the show, possibly with members of the band, at like sounding hometown boys Dropkick’s Murphy’s bar McGann’s on Boylston Street. Stop by for a pint until 3PM today… or stay right up until showtime at 6PM.
Expect to see Bosstone fans from all over in town the next few nights. Every year these shows are the pinnacle of a year of great touring for Dicky Barrett and the band and one a true fan just can’t bear to miss.
Our suggestion is to make a night (or two or three) out of it and stay in the nearby Hotel Commonwealth or Elliot Hotel. It will make for easier travels (with proper footwear) and a night of Boston beats in the midst of a true Nor’easter.
House of Blues is located at 15 Lansdowne St., next to Fenway Park, Boston 888.693.2583
