Lineup and schedule announced for Nov. 17's Billy Ruane Memorial Birthday Bash



The lineup for next Wednesday's Billy Ruane Memorial Birthday Bash has been finalized, and it's incredible -- more than 30 performers and presenters will come together on Nov. 17 across two venues in Central Square. Seeing how the Middle East's live music chapter was launched by Ruane after his party at T.T.'s was overbooked, this is a perfect partnership, and maybe the start of a new tradition.

Ticket information, including word of wristbands that will allow entry to both rooms, are currently being worked out. But we do know that admission is $10, and proceeds will go to the Billy Ruane Archives, care of the Mark Sandman Project. Here's the full lineup (and the Facebook event page, for more info):
