Options July 24, 2013: Live from the front lounge at Maxwell's! With live performances from CHRIS STAMEY and SPEED THE PLOUGH! Interviews with STAN DEMESKI, BOB BERT, and more! A celebration of and farewell to our dear friend Maxwell's.

Maxwell's, the Hoboken mainstay and longtime dear friend of WFMU, is closing its doors at the end of July. Wednesday night, July 24, was Bar/None Records night as the venerable local label paid tribute to Maxwell's legendary run. While the Bar/None tribute was happening in the back I was broadcasting from the front lounge with live performances, interviews, and an assortment of Bar/None and Maxwell's-related music - check out the playlist for all the details, and click the links to hear the show!

Extra-special thanks to Scott Williams, Irene Trudel, AmEdeo, and DJ Superpong for their invaluable assistance before, during, and after the show. Thanks as well to Todd Abramson and Glenn Morrow, and to all the guests who came on the air to share their Maxwell's memories.

I've never heard Chilton's version of Oogum Boogum before. Wow.
  Wed. 7/24/13 9:18pm green mountain man mark:

Hey I am here thanks for good show
  Wed. 7/24/13 9:20pm PB:

Considering how great his band was, fair to say Alex Chilton's solo career was an even bigger disappointment than McCartney's?
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:23pm Uncle Michael:

Do you consider Wings part of McCartney's solo career? If so, then I think the premise is flawed.
  Wed. 7/24/13 9:25pm PB:

Michael, yes I do. In my opinion McCartney's solo career was dreadful. So was Chilton's. Just my opinion.
  Wed. 7/24/13 9:25pm PB:

Including Wings.
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:26pm Uncle Michael:

I love Wings so we're not on the same page...viva la differenace.
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:27pm Uncle Michael:

Were the Box Tops Chilton's Beatles and Big Star his Wings?
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:27pm Chris in TX via RI:

I'm not afraid to admit I like Wings. But I have never brought myself to listen to a true McCartney solo record. And I'm not in any hurry to.
  Wed. 7/24/13 9:29pm PB:

The Box Tops weren't really around long enough to factor into the discussion.
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:32pm Uncle Michael:

Box Tops: 4 albums in three years. Big Star: 3 albums in 4 years.
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:34pm efd:

Very limited commenting from me tonight, but thanks to everyone for tuning in! And thanks to Tim for holding it down in the studio. Please talk amongst yourselves.
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:35pm Uncle Michael:

Evan, if you get him to sit down, please tell Freedy that a Northeast Kansan and Cornucopia patron says that he's missed around here...
  Wed. 7/24/13 9:36pm PB:

Fair enough. What I should have said is that the Box Tops didn't have nearly the same impact as Big Star. Big Star was in a different league. I'll go punish myself by listening to Band on the Run.
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:38pm Uncle Michael:

Awww...be nice to yourself listen to Venus and Mars. I like Big Star orders of magnitude more than the Box Tops too.
  Wed. 7/24/13 9:40pm Rick from WO Town:

Wings are great. I always think of the Beatles as McCartney's former back-up band, which I think is fair. And no Beatles album (well maybe 2 are) are as good as All Things Must Pass from the guitar guy.
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:42pm Uncle Michael:

I don't know if I think ATMP is better than every Beatles album but I do think it's the best post-Beatles release.
  Wed. 7/24/13 9:43pm Jojodillon:

Good stuff, reminds me of Ben Gibbard a bit.
  Wed. 7/24/13 9:44pm PB:

I agree, All Things Must Pass is a great album (thanks in large part to Phil Spector's production), but The Beatles as McCartney's backup band? I assume you're kidding. If not, that is one of the most ridiculous statements I've ever heard, about any topic. Plastic Ono Band was also a great Beatles solo record, and Imagine was pretty good too.
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 9:46pm Uncle Michael:

I was just telling a friend of mine that's a cellist for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra about Jane the other night. How cool.

Gaylord is great.
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 10:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...BigStar better than solo Chilton? - I don't know much but I wonder if there might be some truth to that...like JoeStrummer said about the Clash - if you got the right people (band) for the right chemistry - you should really value that...
- I love that FMU brings Special Events to my humble trap!...

Hi, Evan: Great to hear one of my fave WNYU djs live at my all-time favorite club. For old-time's sake, how about some Lyres? Hello to Todd!
Avatar Wed. 7/24/13 10:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Sir (Paul) Macca solo - I think of as a lot like Clapton - I know it's in him but his motivation & his 'kewlness' goes up & down over years (decades?!) ...I'd say Sir Macca's Kewlness in later recent years has gone up & his solo albums are okay - & I'd love to have seen him Live.
...Off-topic of Maxwell's (sorry) but typical chatty for efd's board here I suppose!...

Myself a former Maxwellian-bandmate of the Chris Stamey Group,, Vinny Denunzio's Outsets, The Cosmopolitans, FourFour and a longtime friend of BarNone, I'd suggest a Maxwell's South in Asbury Park!

Evan, thank you.
On verge of heat exhaustion so no commenting, a lot of lying down with ice packs, w/b listening

Can we all agree on the greatness of The Feelies?" Absolutely. Man, Good Earth is one my favorite albums. Favorite driving record for sure.

  Wed. 7/24/13 11:30pm John:

Ah yes, Maxwell's Plum. It hurts to know that it will be with us no longer. A Cultural Landmark. An Institution. An integral part of Hoboken, of New Jersey, of the New York Metropolitan Area music scene. Long live Maxwell's, and all of the fine people who are part of it, who have performed there, and who have passed through its doors. Maxwell's is part of who we are.
