In the early 2000s, I was a student at UConn in Storrs, CT. I had been spoiled by the ska and punk scene in the New Haven area where I’d grown up. I soon discovered that Boston was less than an hour and a half away. Suddenly, I had new options for shows.
In 2007, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones celebrated a 10th Hometown Throwdown after a 4-or-so year hiatus. To hype up up the shows, they released a 6-part video series called “Road to the Throwdown.”
