I’m trying to go as often as I can. This place (plus Christine Santelli, bless her soul) is one of few things that provides Hoboken with any culture at all. Saw some amazing shows over the years. I don’t think I would have ever considered moving here if it hadn’t been for the Maxwell’s place and Christine @ Scotland Yard.

Among my favorite recent gigs: Mark Eitzel, Dresden Dolls (not that recent I guess, but fantastic), Final Fantasy, Erin McKeown…


I saw a few bands at Maxwell’s that are now pretty big. Saw Built to Spill there and it was amazing. Not sure if I saw the Strokes there, it might have been in city but wherever it was 10 people showed up.
