In this episode: The operators of the storied Hoboken, N.J. music venue, Maxwell’s, will close up shop at the end of July. Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan, a veteran of the Maxwell’s stage (understatement of the year), joins us to talk about the club. Plus: Your Maxwell’s moments, and stories of the beloved music venue.
And: Drummer, Kendrick Scott, once described himself in an interview as a “pretty boring guy.” But we found out that Scott and his jazz quintet, Oracle, are also a crack basketball squad. We hear a live set from the band, whose new album is called Conviction.
