Maxwell's Closes Tonight with Block Party & Final Show

[UPDATE, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday: The Individuals and Delicate Steve are playing the first Maxwell's closing-night show, at 6 p.m. The Bongos and a finish off the evening with a 9 p.m. show. Unfortunately we weren't able to update this post in order to let you know about these gigs, which sold out quickly, but it's hoped that you found out one way or another.

The free block party is now going on in front of the club, on 11th St. east of Washington (Maxwell's address is 1039 Washington). Even if you couldn't get tickets to one of the final shows, come on down to the block party (see photo below), which runs until 11 p.m.]

It's been a great final few weeks of shows for the venerated Maxwell's, but it all comes to an end tonight with a block party and a final show in the back room (details still sketchy). More details on the last shows we've seen, but for now just a brief post on the party tonight: it will take place on 11th Street in front of the club, from 4 to 11 p.m. (according to this tweet from Maxwell's).

There will be DJs and maybe some live music. The back-room show is said to feature The Bongos, a, and maybe The Individuals, too, but the gig has never been listed on the club's website, and even folks who work at Maxwell's aren't sure on tickets for the gig or whether it will be free, etc. (or how the countless people who want to attend the show would even be chosen).

In any case, do head on out to Hoboken this afternoon or evening and give Maxwell's a proper send-off!
