We were saddened to hear that Hoboken’s iconic club Maxwell’s will be closing its doors July 31 after over three decades of showcasing the best of the underground indie music scene. Words cannot express what the club meant to the band as musicians, as friends, and as fans of great music (and great food!). We played there, worked there, ate there, and yes, were even banned from there. Rye screened movies there, and even played our reunion show there back in 2011. Todd Abramson and co always were good to Rye. As Jon says in the video below, “If you ever want to start a band or a club, take notes.”
Couldn’t help but craft this ode of sorts to the club we always called home. Thanks, Maxwell’s. We still love you.
