The Mighty Mighty BossToneS annouce dates, theme for 2019 HomeTown ThrowDown

I’m not sure how Christmas is right around the proverbial corner all of a sudden. Doesn’t seem right. BUT to help make that a little more palatable, the legendary Mighty Mighty BossToneS have announced preliminary info surrounding this year’s HomeTown ThrowDown!

This year’s festivities are taking place the weekend after Christmas – December 27-29, to be precise – at their longtime home, Boston’s House Of Blues. The theme of this year’s ThrowDown is “It’s A Plaid Plaid Plaid Plaid World,” though we’re still curious as to what that might mean. Here’s what iconic frontman Dicky Barrett had to say: “This year, on the 30th anniversary of our very first album, myself and the other Plaid Boys of Boston are returning to our tartan root. Expect all the warmth and wonder this holiday tradition has always delivered. Please join us we will not disappoint!” Any thoughts on what tricks the fellas might have up their collective sleeves?

Stay tuned for ticket info, opening acts, and more ThrowDown coverage as it becomes available!

The Mighty Mighty BossToneS’ latest release, While We’re At It, came out last year on the band’s own Big Rig Records, which also just released the new album from BossTones bassist Joe Gittleman’s “side project” Avoid One Thing earlier this month!

DS Photo Gallery: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at The Regent Theater (Los Angeles, CA)

The best dressed band in punk rock graced the stage of The Regent Theater in Los Angeles nearly two weeks ago to play one of their most influential albums in its entirety. That’s right, friends, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, came to the West Coast to play Let’s Face It from front to back, in addition to a number of other classic tunes. The entire set clocked in at a little over 90 minutes – and it was 90 minutes full of infectious sing-alongs, camaraderie, and dancing. It was a night this crowd would not soon forget.

The opening bands, Buster Shuffle & Los Kung Fu Monkeys, brought a ton of energy and got the crowd ready for the main event. The Regent was packed full of fans, young and old alike, all waiting to hear all of the hits from one of the best ska-punk albums released in the 90s. The big surprise was original guitarist Nate Albert joining them on stage to play their biggest hit. If you’ve seen the Bosstones before, you know that “The Impression That I Get” is typically the closer – but on this night, the boys from Boston stayed true to the album order, making it the 4th song of the night. MMB came out swinging as they ripped through the track list, making this album feel as relevant today as it felt 20 years ago. Hearing Let’s Face It was worth the price of admission alone.

Lucky for us, they still had some tricks up their sleeves (suitcoats?). While their set at Punk Rock Bowling in May was pretty standard (lots of hits & crowd favorites, along with one new song), they took the opportunity to play a more eclectic set for this LA crowd, including a few tracks from their latest album, While We’re At It.

To sum it up, MMB never disappoint they put on an amazing show – the kind of show that makes you want to throw your arm around your neighbor at the show as you sing along at the top of your lungs. The Let’s Face It show in LA was no exception – I can’t wait for the next chance to be in the pit with them again!

Check out the full gallery from the show below!
