Ska can often sound like happy-go-lucky circus music, but Boston natives The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have been adding some grit—accomplished partly through frontman Dicky Barrett's gravelly voice—to the genre since 1984. Part of the third wave of ska that hit popularity in the '90s—with bands such as No Doubt, Rancid and Reel Big Fish at the forefront—The Mighty Mighty Bosstones pioneered the ska-core style, a combination of ska and elements of punk, hardcore and rock. The band went on hiatus in 2003 but reunited in 2007, and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones proved to their fans that their plaid flame is brighter than ever with the release of two new albums, including their latest, 2011's The Magic of Youth. Show Me Island and Interrupters will open. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
