Good music. Ample booze on tap. The chance to see Peter Gammons and Theo Epstein sling an axe and local music gods like Kay Hanley, Bill Janovitz and Stacy Jones get down to bi’ness. Also, a fantastic cause. And the possibility of a Bud-fueled Jonathan Papelbon tearing through some of your favorite rock standards.

Seriously, does anyone need another reason to try to grab some tickets to Saturday’s Hot Stove Cool Music at the ‘dise?

Me neither.
