As we continue to count down the days until New Jersey music institution Maxwell’s permanently shutters, the venue and SIMGE contributors will continue to shine a spotlight on those who are coming together to bid a fond farewell. Last Friday, The Everymen played Maxwell’s for the last time along with Life Eaters, Black Wine, Brooklyn What. Jim Appio AKA CoolDad Music caught up with the headliners before their late night adieu.
“Mike V, Catherine Herrick, Jake Fiedler, Tom Barrett, and Joe Centeno of The Everymen took some time prior to their final set at Maxwell’s to share some of their thoughts on the closing of a venue that, for several members of the New Jersey band, has felt like a second home. They shared some memories, some thoughts on what the closing of Maxwell’s means for local bands like theirs, and what’s coming up for The Everymen, including a trip to North Carolina’s Hopscotch Festival to play with Pissed Jeans.”
