If you were a teenager growing up near Boston, Big D and the Kids Table had to have been on your list of bands you love. Straight outta Allston, these guys have been blasting out ska punk tracks since 1995, when they met in college. “It’s a nice house, I don’t need much. It’s got a little welfare porch. I can sit there all day and still have fun,” the dudes sing about 51 Gardner Street back in the day. Every year for the past 16 years, they’ve come back together to celebrate Halloween with us. All of their tracks will make you want to party like you’re still a grimy 19-year-old.
