Beachcomber in Quincy to Close Out with Dropkick Murphys Show
A landmark bar and music club is on the verge of closing forever, and now we have learned that a popular local band will be the last musical act to play there.
The Boston Globe is reporting that the Dropkick Murphys will be playing at the Beachcomber in Quincy tomorrow night (Saturday, October 3), with the Wollaston Beach club's Facebook page confirming this. The Dropkick Murphys' website has more information, saying that 250 tickets will be available, with 150 going on sale at noon today and 100 more going on sale at the club starting at noon tomorrow. (Maximum of two tickets per sale.)
The Beachcomber--which first opened in 1959--had originally been looking to close in early September but remained open throughout the month to allow time for bands to play final shows there. It appeared that the last show was to have been last Sunday, with the place being open one more time this past Wednesday. (The club is scheduled to be demolished, with a high-end restaurant apparently replacing it.)
The address for the Beachcomber is 797 Quincy Shore Drive, Quincy, MA, 02170.
