Throwback Thursday: Big D and the Kids Table Plays 1998 Rock N Roll Rumble

In 1998, a very young Big D and the Kids Table were semifinalists at the WBCN Rock N Roll Rumble held at the Middle East Upstairs. They were ultimately knocked out (going by Wikipedia, I wasn’t there), but the  whole set was caught on video. It features early tunes from Shot by Lammi and Good Luck. The video was posted by former Big D saxist, Chris Bush who left in 2005. Enjoy this classic look at the long-running Boston ska/punk band!
