Fall 2013 Hoboken Arts & Music Festival
Fall 2013 Hoboken Arts & Music Festival: Sunday, September 29th
The second of two annual Hoboken Arts & Music Festivals in 2013 takes place on Washington Street between Observer Highway and 7th Streets this Sunday, September 29th.
Just like always (rinse, repeat), you can aimlessly wander around the streets from 11am to 6pm to see hundreds of (mostly) out-of-town vendors selling food, artwork, and myriad of other trinkets and tchotchkes.
Big attractions are typically the zeppoles and fried crab cakes – and of course Cake Boss oglers will be around too. Three music stages also set up. The main stage is south of the CVS downtown, a kiddie stage at 3rd Street, and a secondary stage at the north end of the festival between 6th and 7th Streets. Hopefully for festival-goers, the weather holds out. Otherwise, it’ll be a giant bust. This is a rain or shine event.
Some of this year’s featured musical acts include:
- Headlining: The Feelies
- Speed the Plough
- Davey & The Train Wreck
- The Nerds
- Garden Street School Band, and several more.
Unique performance from Carolina Jug Stompers
One particular act that stands out from the rest this year is Carolina Jug Stompers. They play the 6th Street stage at around 3:15pm.
“The Carolina Jug Stompers are four busy musicians scattered around the country who get together as often as their other projects allow. Jugband gems, fiddle and mandolin rags, hokum and blues, ancient jazz, and original songs. With Luke Faust, Ron Cole, Randy Johnson, and WB Reid.”
Here’s a video of what they sound like. Definitely not the same sound you hear blaring out of car radios in Hoboken…
