Mighty Mighty Bosstones announce Hometown Throwdown 18 details


Great news, Boston-area Mighty Mighty Bosstones fans! The Hometown Throwdown is almost upon us!

The Bosstones have unveiled plans for the eighteenth installment of their annual Christmastime romp in their hometown. While the event still takes place at the rather cavernous House Of Blues, it’ll have a much more intimate feel to it than in the past, as it’ll pay homage to the long-departed Kenmore Square club, “The Rat.” Here’s what the band had to say:

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!”

The 18th Hometown Throwdown takes place December 26-28th, and tickets go on sale this coming Saturday. Head below to check out the full night-by-night rundown and the official event flier!
