The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones formed in Boston in 1983. The group will be joined by fellow local band The Dogmatics on Dec. 29 for the first evening of a three-night Hometown Throwdown series hosted by RadioBDC at the House of Blues. The Bosstones have covered the Dogmatics’ Christmas song "X-Mas Time (Sure Don't Feel Like It)” in the past — could we smell a fun duet? It may be out of the question since the show is after Christmas, but we’ll put it on our list for Santa. You can listen to both band’s versions below. Warning: this one may be more suitable for the Scrooges of the world.
Sample of “X-Mas Time (Sure Don’t Feel Like It)”
Down in Filene’s Basement
Pretend I’m shopping for a friend
This time of year means nothing
You’ve got nothing you can spend
