Mighty Mighty BossToneS Announce 20th Hometown Throwdown

Boston ska/punk legends The Mighty Mighty BossToneS have announced their annual Hometown Throwdown event at Boston’s House of Blues. The hosts of everyone’s favorite holiday party have promised that the 20th edition will be something to remember.

This year believe it or not it is ThrowDown number 20 – where did the time go? The end of 2017 also wraps up a year that The Mighty Mighty Ones spent honoring, celebrating, and observing the 20th anniversary of their album “Let’s Face It” so expect more of that along with a lot of other big surprises. Merry 20 everyone!

It’s true that 2017 marked the 20th anniversary of the band’s landmark album “Let’s Face It.” The milestone sparked thinkpieces in both The Boston Globe and Washington Post which I think was probably not the big surprise they were referring to. The band surprised fans with some summer dates playing the album in full. I wouldn’t be surprised if they kept some of those songs in the set list having already taken the time to relearn them.

Only the dates have been announced, December 28, 29, and 30, 2017. We stand by anxiously awaiting the announcement of support acts and other special treats. Until then, tickets go on sale Friday, September 15 at 10 AM. Each night is all ages and doors are at 6 PM. Ticket links can be found in our calendar where we’ll also be sure to update the list of openers as we learn them.

UPDATE 9/15/17 11:45 AM: Tickets are on sale and range from $27 to $108.

  1. Thursday, December 28, 2017 with Piebald and The Doped Up Dollies
  2. Friday, December 29, 2017 with Rude Bones and Vic Ruggiero
  3. Saturday, December 30, 2017 with The Pietasters and Kicked in the Head

Stay tuned for our annual guide to throwdown offering everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask about this annual hootinanny!

But wait, there’s more! Maybe those first few days of the holidays are always kind of tricky. You’re in luck. Our Bosstones are playing Sam Adams October Fest on October 27 at the World Trade Center Concourse. This, unlike Throwdown, is 21+. Tickets are $45 if they’re not sold out!
