Call it Diner City. Call it Wormtown. But either way Worcester is home to some of the best art and live music in Massachusetts. What better place to catch both than Ralph's Chadwick Square Rock Diner. This Saturday, November 21, they will host a benefit show for the Worcester Artist Group featuring The Balls reunion. One of 'Gansetts favorite bands, Tony Jones and the Cretin 3 will also be playing along with Jetset and Timebeings. Ralphs has always kept it simple; burger, veggieburger, chili or chiliburger and of course plenty of refreshing Rock & Roll! It's no wonder Narragansett will be the official sponsor of the evening. So get to Ralphs, eat a burger, chug a 'Gansett and watch some awesome punk for a great cause.
