Hometown Showdown: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are playing T.T. The Bear’s Place on Saturday

When T.T. The Bear’s Place announced its final week of shows earlier this month, there was one big gaping hole in the jam-packed schedule: Saturday, July 18.

We were told that one of the bands playing Fenway Park that night might be making a special appearance to help send off the closing Cambridge rock club, and now that news is confirmed — the Mighty Mighty Bosstones are throwing down this Saturday.

“We are thrilled to be able to participate in celebrating and thanking the good people of T.T.’s for all they’ve given to us and our city over the years,” the Bosstones said. They are expected to hit the stage at 11 p.m.

Tickets are $20 and only available online through Emporium of Pop Culture.

Earlier that evening, the Bosstones are playing Fenway with Mission of Burma and the Foo Fighters. Maybe they’ll bring Dave Grohl over to Central Square afterwards. Here are details:
