Boston Does Boston Vols. 1&2 – To Benefit The Animal Rescue League of Boston

26 record songs, 16 live bands, 3 nights, 2 venues, 1 cause.

Boston Does Boston is a startup benefit series, where diverse musicians and bands of the local music scene re-interpret each other's material for charity CDs and live events. All sales and ticket proceeds to benefit the Animal Rescue League of Boston. If you haven’t heard Sarah Rabdau & Self-Employed Assassins cover Dead Cats Dead Rats’ “No God in Massachusetts”, then you haven’t lived yet.

Twenty-six of today’s most exciting Boston bands contributed to the two volume CD set and sixteen of them will be performing over a three night period at two staple music venues between Friday, December 13th and Sunday December 15th.

A charity near and dear to my heart, this sexy beast is an Animal Rescue League alum.

About Boston Does Boston

Inspired by 1996 compilation, Burlington Does Burlington (Good Citizen Records), The Luxury’s guitarist/vocalist Jason Dunn pondered the recreation of the idea in Boston – “[Boston Does Boston] would be a way to knit an often disparate music community more closely together and make an unapologetically big deal out of the talent in the area without competition, rivalry or falling under any corporate or business umbrella, just plain mutual appreciation and tons and tons of talent on display.”

The idea continued with the production of CDs and CD release parties, giving all profits to The Animal Rescue League of Boston, where countless dogs, cats and other animals are given a second lease on life after being rescued from streets or abusive or negligent homes.
