Fifth Annual Rat Beach Party to reunite original Rathskeller bands, players

For greater-Boston/New England music fans who miss the days of the Rat music venue, The 5th Annual Rat Beach Party will feature 55 rock bands spanning over the last two weekends of September. Held at The C Note in Hull, Massachusetts on Nantasket Beach, the roster of bands performing will feature some of the bands that used to perform at The Rat in Boston, Massachusetts. Other lineups will include musicians who used to play in bands at The Rat. A host band for each day will be a notable local area band from the current greater-Boston music scene.
