Off Broadway's yearly celebration of our loveable local crustacean will not, for the first time ever, feature a performance by the now-defunct Monads. Take your moment of silence; the frantic folk outfit is dearly missed. But the mantle could not have been passed to a more exceptional ambassador for such a feast. The mighty Rum Drum Ramblers, recent winner of the 2012 RFT Music Award for "Best Blues Band," will headline after an opening set by Pat Eagan's new band, the Royal Smokestacks. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to crack open some boiled exoskeletons.

Pro Tip: Fill up on red beans and rice. Crawfish are a zero sum game on nutrients vs. energy expended, as far as we're concerned.
