Yeah we’re sitting here in August stuck in perpetual summer, but we’re already looking forward to the holidays. And nothing gets us into the jolly-fucker mood quite like Boston’s annual slate of holiday-themed shows. Making an early claim are Street Dogs, who today have outlined their 13th annual Wreck The Halls shows booked at Brighton Music Hall in Allston.
This year’s Wreck The Halls go down December 14, 15, and 16, and the special guest openers are Slapshot, Art Thieves, Noi!se, Dori Cameron and the Invisible Monsters, 1916 and Ramallah. Tickets for all three nights go on sale this Friday (August 24) at 10 a.m. Boston time. Per the band’s Facebook post, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to “Massachusetts Fallen Heroes”.
Wreck The Halls will cap an active year for the Boston punk band, as back in June they released new album Stand for Something or Die for Nothing via Century Media. It was recorded at Woolly Mammoth Studios, Sugarland Studio, and Q Division Studio, and produced by bassist Johnny Rioux, mix by Sean Cahalin, and mastered by Jeff Lipton.
“Punk, to me, is people living how they want to not how they are told to,” vocalist Mike McColgan said about the LP in June, adding: “The dumbing down of America is a reason to write songs in 2018. The theme is wake the fuck up and the working class needs to unite across all colors, creeds, nationalities, genders and realize that we are being pitted against each other by snake oil salesmen and autocrats.”
The unity will be on full display this December. Peep the gorgeous flyer below for more holiday motivation.
