Dicky Barrett has big birthday plans this weekend, as he and the rest of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones will be taking over City Hall Plaza for an exclusive performance on Saturday, as a part of the Phantom Gourmet BBQ & Music Festival.

While the festival, which runs June 20-22, already has a stacked line-up, comedian Jimmy Kimmel will be also be joining the birthday festivities.

Barrett, the announcer for “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” got a surprise visit on Friday from the late-night talk show host and comedian “Cousin Sal.”

Oddly enough, Kimmel will forgo comedy to play the clarinet during The Mighty Mighty Bosstones’ Saturday performance, which should be an interesting spectacle to see.

In addition to the Boston-based band, The Phantom Gourmet BBQ & Music Festival will also feature musical guests The Timberfakes, Salt-N-Pepa, Barrence Whitfield & the Savages, and BearFight. A Southern-style barbecue and various food competitions will be going on all weekend long as well.
