Trashcan Sinatras at Maxwell’s June 12th


Take the Trashcan Sinatra Quiz and win prizes!

Many of you have heard of the band The Trashcan Sinatras, and they’ll be playing at Maxwell’s this Saturday, June 12th at 9:30pm (buy tickets here.)

They created an interesting video for their summer 2010 tour, which travels from the west coast, to the northcentral, and over to the northeast.

In this video, they show a selection of still images – and you need to guess the relationship between the three photos for each city they’re playing in. I think I got the ones from New Jersey – see my answers after the jump, and let me know if I’m right! (I’m way to busy to try the others…)

See Hoboken411’s guesses after the jump!

Trashcan Sinatra Quiz Answers (for Hoboken, NJ):

I quickly assumed that even though they said “Guess the connections between the pictures and the cities… that they must have meant “State” (i.e., New Jersey) for Hoboken…

  • George Clinton (Parliament / Funkadelic): Raised in Plainfield, NJ
  • Watermelon (seedless): I would assume this is related to “The Garden State…” (or see my other possible answer below)
  • Count Basie: Born in Red Bank, NJ

You think the watermelon answer was correct? The only other possibility may be a bike race that was held last week in Piscataway, NJ called “The Watermelon Criterium” – (hence the two halves of the watermelon symbolizing wheels??)

I remember liking their one album a lot. It’s good they are still together, and what a Hoboken appropriate name for their visit to our dirty Sinatra-y town!

The Transcan Sinatras give a great show in small venues. One of my favorite bands of all time-there’s nothing like the music that comes out of Scotland, in my opinion.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
