The venerable Boston rock band Mission of Burma is playing two shows, tonight and tomorrow at the Brighton Music Hall. Now, you might be surprised to hear that Burma is still together: the group began performing in 1979 but disbanded way back in 1983. But they got back together 10 years ago, and are now working on a new album.
We take a closer look at the genesis of the band.
