Today: "Sounds of Hoboken" All Day, All Over Town

Not sure how I didn't hear about this before, but today (Sunday) is the day for "Sounds of Hoboken," an all-day event featuring free musical performances all over the Mile Square City.  

Download the "Sounds of Hoboken" guide below to see what's happening.

Beginning in the late 1970s, a wide range of bands have either formed in Hoboken, recorded there, or gotten a boost there, most often by performing at clubs such as Maxwell's and the long-departed Beat 'N Path.

"Sounds of Hoboken" started at 11 a.m. and runs until 7 p.m. The musicians will be performing in venues ranging from inside stores and bars to out in the parks. Check the link for the artists participating, and download the full schedule (PDF document), which lets you see all the goings-on two different ways. You can view all the venues in alphabetical order, or look for musicians (also listed alphabetically).

I haven't heard of a lot of the musicians who are participating, but some of them include:

2011 Hoboken Sinatra Idol Greg Myers * Drums of Thunder * Emily Turonis and the Ideals * Gene D. Plumber * Jack Skuller * Jon & Deena (from The Cucumbers) * Preschool of Rock * SummerStage Pro’s cast of "Les Miserables" * members of The Fave * and many more

If you're in or around Hoboken, by all means check out "Sounds of Hoboken." It's a beautiful day to be out and about, and all the music is free.
