New Jersey indie-punk band Titus Andronicus kicked off their amped-up headlining set on the second night of the WCDB birthday bash with a charged cover of Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back in Town.”

The ‘70s anthem may as well have been the theme song for Boston trio the Neighborhoods, who played earlier in the night and peppered their high-energy set with remembrances from shows past in Albany, where they were a fixture on the local music scene – and a WCDB staple – in the ‘80s and ‘90s.



CD: The Neighborhoods’ “The Last Rat: Live at the Rat ’92”

The Neighborhoods: The Last Rat(Ram Van Records, 2010):

The Holy Grail has landed.

Anybody who is a Neighborhoods fan will tell you they have been waiting 18 years through all the rumors, promises and false starts impatiently for the genuine article to appear. “The Last Rat” is a live recording made on October 24, 1992, at the venerable and gone Boston rock dive the Rat. It was the last wave goodbye from a band that spanned 17 years, put out 5 albums, logged thousand of miles and at every show left it all out on the stage.
