Right around the time a middle-age woman wearing a coconut bra puked two seats down from me, I made a vow: Never again would I attend a Jimmy Buffett concert.

I take that back. Never again would I see Jimmy Buffett in the Boston area, which is one of his biggest markets. It’s also where legions of Parrotheads, the fond nickname for Buffett’s loyal subjects, take over the Comcast Center in Mansfield for a full day of drinking, tailgating, and going wild like they don’t have to work the next morning.
