Gah... I'm a very bad fan it seems.
Luckily I ran into an fraternity brother at a wedding who informed be that not only did the Bosstones release second post hiatus studio disc back in December but there were touring this summer with a date in Philly.
Of course he didn't know about the B-side collection or the first studio album they put out post hiatus, so I suppose we're even.
The nifty thing is I had bought tickets to the show and the new album before the appetizers and had the whole thing downloaded to my phone by the time the drive home came around.
The schedule for anyone interested:
Aug 03 Hampton Beach, NH Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom
Aug 04 Philadelphia, PA Trocadero
Aug 06 New York, NY Webster Hall
Aug 07 Washington, DC 9:30 Club

Buffalo's a free show, the rest are on Ticket Fly.
