It is our great pleasure to share the master plan for Hometown Throwdown 18. Once again weâ€™ll be taking over Bostonâ€™s palatial House of Blues for three nights but this time weâ€™re getting help from friends we met long ago at Kenmore Squareâ€™s infamous subterranean Rathskeller club. Weâ€™ll be Throwing Down this year with groups that literally built Bostonâ€™s underground music scene while paving the way for future generations and inspiring countless bands including the BossToneS. Garage punk legends The Real Kids, Rat regulars The Neighborhoods and a special reunion from Bostonâ€™s beloved melodic punk band The Outlets anchor this yearâ€™s lineup. To kick off the festivities weâ€™ve got our pals Stranglehold, New Hampshireâ€™s finest wise-ass punks the Queers and the best rock and roll band to ever strap on guitars AND buckle up shoes: the riotous Upper Crust.
The 18th annual Hometown Throwdown will take place from December 26-28th. The 26th will feature the Neighborhoods and Upper Crust. The 27th will have the Real Kids and the Queers on the bill. The Outlets and Stranglehold play the final night. Tickets go on sale this coming Saturday.
