Boston has a fervent music scene and MIT's radio station, WMBR, has been documenting it for 25 years via local music show Pipeline!. In celebration of the show's quarter century, they're throwing a festival called "Pipeline! At 25: 50 Years of Boston Rock" featuring over 80 Boston bands from the show's history, many of whom are reuniting just for the fest. Those bands include O Positive, Gigolo Aunts, Honeybunch, Dumptruck, Fuzzy, The Cavedogs, Green Magnet School, Drumming on Glass, and loads more (obviously). It happens at various Boston venues from September 12 - October 12. More info and tickets to the various shows can be found here.
