New Jersey club Maxwell’s closing in July

It’s always sad when a musical institution shuts its doors. Next month, Hoboken, NJ will lose Maxwell’s, which has been open since 1978.

The current co-owner, Todd Abramson, who also books shows at the Brooklyn venue The Bell House, cited a lack of parking and the changing scene in Hoboken for the club’s demise.

“We were offered a renewal with rates that weren’t necessarily onerous,” he said. “But after much thought, given the changing nature of Hoboken and the difficulties of trying to run a business in this town, we decided it was time.”

The last show will be July 31. Maxwell’s has booked some pretty amazing acts over the years.
