Running Time : 73:03 The Rat was the club of legend in Boston during the New Wave. The first home of locals like the Cars and later 'Til Tuesday. Their jukebox was a mix of local, home pressed 45's and, what was at the time, cutting edge breakouts. No matter when you went though, you'd hear the same few songs between the live sets. "Roxanne" may seem trite and over-played now, but at the time, it was new and fresh. Even better was seeing Sting and the Police in such a small venue when they first started breaking out (as well as the Go-Go's and Squeeze). An awesome time.
