Maxwell’s Enduring Legacy

11/13/2007:

At the Hoboken Historical Museum this Saturday at 4pm.

Anyone remember when Maxwell’s turned into that wacky micro-brew pub? That trend didn’t last long.

Maxwell’s Enduring Legacy

Maxwell’s has fostered the careers of local musicians, up-and-coming bands and serious singer songwriters since the late 70s. With the exception of a brief stint as a brewpub, it’s been one of the top clubs for serious music fans in the tristate area for nearly 30 years.

This Saturday, Nov. 17 at 4pm, hear from the two men responsible for creating this legacy of great music entertainment, Steve Fallon and Todd Abramson. Join us to celebrate their contributions to putting Hoboken on the national music map and learn the secret behind the club’s phenomenal success. Admission is $5, free for members.

Also, Maxwell’s is featuring legendary Yo La Tengo from 12/4-12/11 for the The 8 Nights of Hanukkah with Yo La Tengo, but all shows are already SOLD OUT!

After he had a six pack of green devils, and a little, well I better not say, he’d put his hands all over anyone.

The Jonah Matranga show last night had pretty damn good sound and was an all around good show.

[quote comment=”53631″]What’s great is the consistent quality of acts they book, which is why it’s cool to hear from Steve & Todd. Sound system & sight lines aside (maybe some of us aren’t as sensitive OWO, or maybe we’re just going deaf), Maxwell’s has delivered more memorable shows in my two decades in this area than any other NYC venue. It’s just gravy that it’s four blocks from where I live. I’ve seen most of my favorite singer-songwriters there, and some have responded to the vibe with amazingly intimate shows, like Alejandro Escoveda, Jason Ringenberg, Chris Difford, Tim Easton, the Old 97s & too many others to name here.

Close second is Mercury Lounge, and I guess I’d list the Bowery, Irving Plaza & now Webster Hall, though those shows tend to sell out too fast & the bands tend to deliver pretty standard shows when they can barely see the crowd.[/quote]

fair enough – good post. sounds like we actually like similar music. you may want to chck out sondre lerche there this month – i will be in nashville so i have to catch him at the bowery. great musician and songwriter – old school – think young paul mccartney meets dean martin, with an updated sense of melody. a lot of his shows are really rocking, but this show will just be acoustic

I spent a lot of time at Maxwell’s way back. I had my funky wedding reception in the back room. It was cutting edge in the music scene then. I don’t go there now. I’m not making a judgement. It changed hands a couple of times. It has a differnt feel. There was a Steve Fallon touch, and a few of us remember that touch.
