As you’ve probably read elsewhere, Hoboken’s venerable Maxwell’s, one of our favorite live music venues in this country or any other, is scheduled to close their doors at the end of July.  The club’s role in the development of many Matador artists & alumni cannot be overstated. Also — we had a great time there. Almost always.

Ted Leo will be making his final Maxwell’s appearance on June 21, with support from Shellshag.  Tickets are on sale here.

In addition, Ted, AC Newman, Jennifer O’Connor, Doug Gillard, Home Blitz and a long list of grade-A talent are taking part in a tribute to the recently deceased Scott Miller (Game Theory/Loud Family) at the Cake Shop (NYC) on June 29, with proceeds going to The Scott Miller Memorial Fund. If you cannot attend, donations are accepted here.
