As you can see above, this Sunday, the day Mission of Burma plays a free show at MIT with special-guest openers Eula, the city of Boston will honor the band by declaring "Mission of Burma Day." While it is pretty cool, it should be pointed out that this city has a bizarre habit of handing these things out like they were free samples of organic cookies.
But also, given their awesome post-reunion run, Dinosaur Jr. should get a day, too, no? Okay, they're from Northampton, sure. But that Mission of Burma show isn't even taking place in Boston!
