I've covered shows at numerous venues throughout New York and New Jersey, never really in search for the perfect venue, more so in finding the perfect band — the new, next big thing. Along the way, however, there are certain locations that feel more like my home away from home and this past year it has definitely been Maxwell's in Hoboken. I've witnessed so many great acts there and interviewed some amazing artists as well, including my favorite band throughout most of high school, The Ataris.
So what better way to celebrate the one-year anniversary of You Sing, I Write and tie in three birthdays — myself and two close friends — than spending a night out enjoying live music at my favorite concert venue? I'm still working out the details, but I'm hoping to set up a band line-up by Friday to book the back room of Maxwell's so if you or a band you know is interested in a night of fun and want to play, hit me up! Feel free to leave me a comment on the blog or E-mail Me!
As you can tell, my weekly blog schedule is not going exactly according to plan this week, but next week will be more promising. I have about 10 minutes more of an interview with piano pop/rock band Strive to finish transcribing and post, but I'm putting that on hold to prepare for my interview with frontman Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind tomorrow afternoon! Feel free to email me or leave me comments on anything you might want to know!
