Neumann’s Leathers teams up with Maxwell’s

Hoboken’s legendary music venue, Maxwell’s, will play host in September to the largest fundraiser yet for the Neumann Leathers Tenants Association (NLTA), in an effort to save the city’s last large arts complex from being demolished.

The NLTA is comprised of over 100 artists, artisans and light industry, all located in the Neumann Leathers complex, which is currently under threat of complete demolition. As part of its efforts to save the site, the NLTA will soon present an alternative plan which saves most of the buildings and includes new construction in a feasible redevelopment.

Exhibits A & B

The first event will be an art opening of Neumann artists on Sept. 15 at 7pm, titled “Exhibit A,” which will feature figurative, representational works and photography. The show previews Sept. 6 and runs through Sept. 26.

The second Maxwell’s event will be another art opening of Neumann artists on Sept. 29 at 7 p.m., titled “Exhibit B,” which will feature abstract works. The show will run through Oct. 17.

Yo La Tengo and others to perform

The third event will be a benefit performance at Maxwell’s, also on Sept. 29. Performers will include Yo La Tengo, Outpost, The Jeremy Wallace Trio and Bob Burt’s Five Dollar Priest. Doors open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $25.

Neumann artists who will be showing will include Jennifer Krause, Mike Longo, Michelle Doll, Tim Daly, Bob Piersanti and Mary Ann Farley, among many others. Each art reception will provide free draft beer and wine from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Funds raised will support the NLTA’s legal effort to beat back the current redevelopment plan, which will be heard before the Hoboken Zoning Board Sept. 24 at 7 p.m.

Extensive information on the entire issue is available at www.neumanntenants.org.

Saw the end of the band before YLT. Not sure their name. The songs i heard were interesting. They had a droney pysch rock sound to them.

Yo La Tengo started around 10:45 and played to about 11:20ish. Those are not the exact times. Just guessing but close to that.

[quote comment=”108583″]i mean is it just me or is anyone else tired on hearing about these artists. i mean come on man the financial industy is falling apart, the economy is slowing the a crawl, people are losing their houses and jobs. im really supposed to give a crap about a bunch of whiney artists paying low rent to live in a garbage dump. kick them all out and be done with it. if they can’t pay a normal rent to live in nice building then they should look for a new line of work. i havent heard one intelligent case for why we should give a f about them or that building. put up something of value and improve the area. like im really supposed to care about artists and their low rent. the world has much bigger problem to worry about this charity case .. ENOUGH ps ; mets are awful[/quote] You could start by not reading about it. Follow it up by not responding to it. Otherwise, you’re choosing to get worked up about something that you have complete power to ignore. I am personally sick and tired of reading the same kind of crap from guys like you. Yeah, why care about culture and art? Has anyone won an Emmy, a Pulizer, a Grammy, Academy Award, a Peabody by going to get their MBA? Artists design what you think is cool. They make your clothes for you, your sunglasses, cars, jewelery, art for your walls, utensils,… Read more »
