Local 518 record collective Built4BBQ presents its second annual Star Spangled Bonanza on Saturday (July 4) at both the Low Beat and Pauly’s Hotel. The dual-stage, nine-band blowout is a celebration of homegrown DIY in the USA.

The Star Spangled Bonanza line-up includes a barrage of Nippertown favorites of all musical stripes, including all-star cover band extravaganza Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, twang-punks the Slaughterhouse Chorus, face-melting rockers Charmboy, power-pop darlings Party Boat, country-blues madman Henry’s Rifle, surf-fuzz sensations the Kimono Dragons and Wrestlemania punk rockers the Savage Randys.

In addition, the celebration features return of Brooklyn blues-rock heavy hitters the End Men (fresh from their European tour in support of their new album, Terms and Conditions) and long-running Boston punk the Radicals, playing their last Local 518 show before parting ways in August.

Doors open at 6pm on Saturday, and the rockin’ commences at 7pm. The $6 ticket includes admission to both venues.
