Cambridge, Mass, March 27, 2024 | It's go time. The mounds are melted, the buds are budding, the sun is setting later. Feel the groundswell of excitement as we gear up to shake the stage at The Middle East in Cambridge's scenic Central Square. Rock & Roll Rumble 2024 begins Thursday, April 4 at The Middle East upstairs. Marking safe passage into springtime, The Rumble welcomes faithful live music enthusiasts and Rock devotees with a lineup of choice performers, including the first-ever  Rumble Wildcard, Halfcocked, as the featured special guest for Finals on May 4, performing for the first time in two decades; The band built a name for themselves on the strength of their catchy rock songs and energetic performances.

"We are thrilled about our return to Central Square and the Middle East complex of Rock," Boston Emissions hosts and Rock & Roll Rumble producer, Anngelle Wood, shared, "I say Ever-Ready to Rock, because I know loyal lovers of local music have made plans to come out of the cold storage to share in the warmth of the community that the Rumble has built. It's a sort of renewal. We've got a solid lineup, and having Halfcocked onboard as special guests, that is a dream come true."
