The top is a screenshot from a Chris Christie campaign TV ad. The bottom is a screenshot from my Hurricane Sandy aftermath video (my dad recorded this part)… Amazing that of all the people over many weeks that Christie met they chose this exact same moment in time. #sandy #christie #tv
A sad day for New Jersey’s music scene
Maxwell’s, the Hoboken restaurant and bar that has been one of the most influential indie-rock clubs in New Jersey, is closing down at the end of July.
That’s pretty sad. Maxwell’s was just rated the #3 best music club in America by Rolling Stone magazine, too.
Bands from Nirvana to Yo La Tengo have figured out who they were at this indie-rock mecca. “The room really has love for the underdogs,” says Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker.
Fun Fact: Bruce Springsteen filmed parts of the video for his 1985 hit “Glory Days” here.
