Dicky Barrett's Birthday Bash
- How you know Dicky Barrett: as the sharp-dressed, gravel-voiced ringleader of Boston's beloved ska band, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
- If you don't know a Bosstone from an Employeetone, where else you've seen Dicky: as the announcer on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
- How long Dicky and the Bosstones have had fans skanking to their ska-punk: since 1983
- The impression listeners got from the Bosstones' 1997 classic, "The Impression That I Get": that dancing to zesty horns and growled lyrics is a good thing
- The golden reason for this birthday bash: Dicky's turning 50
- The only way to celebrate that: with a performance by The Bosstones, and special guest performances by The Gaslight Anthem and Barrence Whitfield & the Savages
- What to cross your fingers for: a surprise appearance by Jimmy Kimmel
