Check your sick day tally, rock fans: The Bad Boys from Boston (Aerosmith, that is) have just announced the location for their free pre-election party and performance.

The band will play outdoors at noon on Monday at 1325 Commonwealth Avenue — the band’s first home when they arrived in Boston (you can get a little glimpse courtesy of YouTube user “geobot1” here). Expect new jams from the band’s new album, “Music From Another Dimension!,” which comes out on Election Day proper, and stick around to watch the band handprint the sidewalk.


Clarification: The location of Aerosmith’s free show — 1325 Commonwealth Ave. — was announced after some editions of the paper had already gone to press.
