The Mighty Mighty Review

Last night, my brother and I went to the Mighty Mighty BossTones and Dropkick Murphy's show at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, RI. My bother is more of a Dropkick's fan while I tend more towards the BossTones sound - being a fan since the early 90's.

An all-girl band from LA opened - they were no Kittie. Following that abortion, the BossTones took the stage.

It was a pretty good show, the first time I had seen them in many years and the first time ever outside, rather than a small club in either Providence or Boston/Cambridge.

They opened with "Kinder Words" and then went into "Drunks and Children" - although I don't remember what name they gave it this time. During the middle of that song, Dicky had them bring a young kid up on stage who was obviously into it. He jumped around with Ben and even sang the "God, it's been fun" refrain both times. When the song was done, Dicky put a mic in the kid's face and asked his name.

"Liam", replied the boy.
Dicky, matter of factly replied, "Liam. Of course, I forgot we're in Ireland!"

I guess you had to be there.

They went on to play a good set with some favorites: "Illegal Left", "Toxic Toast", "Rascal King", "Where Did You Go" and of course "Someday I Suppose". Dicky brought his mom on stage and we sang all sang "Happy Birthday" to her.

They left "The Impression That I Get" for their supposed finale, but when that song was done, they launched into "The Impossible Dream" which Dicky announced was about the '67 Red Sox, but as the song ended, the BossTones banner dropped (actually getting caught diagnolly across the banner behind it) half revealing an image of Barrack Obama and the word "Dream".

I was pleasantly surprised when I heard at least half as many boos as cheers. The moral of the story: "Almost Anything Goes", but "Think Again" BossTones if you believe your political views will 'Question the Answers' we have; you may just be left with "A Sad Silence".
