JJ’s Fourth Annual Pirate Party set for Thursday, June 4
Once upon a time, some people had an idea to put on a show at JJ’s Bohemia. It would be in June, it would be a fantastic lineup, people would dress up like pirates and it would be good.
So they tried it, and it wasn’t long before the idea became an annual tradition.
It is officially time for the fourth annual JJ’s Bohemia Pirate Party!
The concept is simple: JJ’s has assembled a killer show for Thursday, June 4 and if you come dressed in your finest freebooting threads, you get a nicely reduced admission price.
The show kicks off at 9 p.m. with ManG, a Ween tribute all the way from New Jersey (you had me at Ween tribute, my little mollusk). Funk You, the killer rock band from Augusta, takes the stage next.
Finally, the night reaches its climax when hometown heroes and inveterate weirdos Opposite Box bring the roof down with their blend of precision musicianship and manic stage show, which still brings a tear to the eye of the remaining members of the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo.
It’s ten bucks to get in, seven if you’re pimped out in pirate wear. Costumed or not, it’s bound to be a great evening of buccanmusic for your inner buccaneers.
