Spring 2014 Hoboken Arts & Music Festival

Spring 2014 Hoboken Arts & Music Festival: Sunday, May 4th

The first of two Hoboken Arts & Music Festivals in 2014 takes place on Washington Street between Observer Highway and 7th Streets on Sunday, May 4th.

Hoboken Arts & Music Festival Sunday May 4 2014

Like the movie Groundhog Day, you can mill 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.

Some of this year’s featured musical acts include:

Groovy performance from The Black Hollies

One particular act that we’re interested in seeing is The Black Hollies.

Here’s a perfect song for the sheep as they enter their voluntary weekly enslavement called “employment” this morning. Not nearly as gloomy as the title suggests, and sounds like a mashup between trippy 60′s and today.

Ricardo Roig & Hoboken Artists Tour

Hoboken Artists Tour featuring Ricardo Roig

Wow, the “arts scene” here in Hoboken is dwindling more than ever. While the folks over in Jersey City promote local artists heavily (they had over 500 exhibitions in a recent studio tour last month), seems like people have given up on it in Hoboken. Even last year, the Hoboken Artists Studio Tour had over 170 participants, this year, it’s down to barely 80.

For the most part, this weekend’s Hoboken Artists Studio Tour received little or no mention elsewhere. One local news rag touched on it, but featured a “Manhattan based photographer!” Why feature a non-Hoboken artist for the Hoboken tour? Ridiculous.

The main points to check out where you can see the largest concentration of work in the shortest amount of time are:

Ricardo Roig art in massive new Hoboken space

So – if you decide to do something that isn’t an “app,” the Artists Studio Tour takes place this Saturday and Sunday, November 9th & 10th from 12pm to 6pm.

Be sure to also check out phenomenal artist Ricardo Roig, too. He has a new space down at 51 Harrison Street (2nd floor – look for the bright red doors). In this 1600 square foot studio he shares with photographer and long time friend Ryan Johnson, he’ll be debuting some of his new “Oil on Canvas” works (he’s taken a break from the amazing screen prints for now.)

Pictured below is a 36″ x 48″ work called “Encore.”

Hope you all enjoy!
