Boston punks Avoid One Thing, founded and fronted by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones‘ bassist Joe Gittleman, have announced plans to reunite for their first show in a decade, and for a great cause.
The band will join a roster that already includes Street Dogs, Ducky Boys, Lenny Lashley’s Gang of One, The Welch Boys, Burning Streets and Duck & Cover for a show to benefit the official Lieutenant Walsh and Firefighter Kennedy Memorial Fund. Walsh and Kennedy, based out of the Engine 33/Ladder 15 house at the famous intersection of Boylston and Hereford Streets, were both killed tragically while fighting a fast-moving fire in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood.
The fundraiser will take place Tuesday, April 22nd at Great Scott in Allston, and will also feature raffle items from Dropkick Murphys, Rancid, Swingin’ Utters, the Boston Bruins, the Boston Red Sox and many more. Stay tuned for ticket info.
Avoid One Thing’s last album, “Chopstick Bridge,” was released via SideOneDummy Records back in 2004.
