Louisville transplants Antietam play Derby show at Maxwell's!

On the 28th anniversary of the founding of their band, Tara Key and Tim Harris of Antietam plan to bring some Derby spirit to Hoboken. Jim Testa (Hey Jersey Beat!) wrote up a meaty article on Antietam, Derby, and Hoboken to help get the word out. A nice, literate trip through rock and NJ history.
Key and Harris discovered Hoboken while touring as members of Louisville’s Babylon Dance Band at the dawn of Hoboken’s Eighties pop scene. When that group dissolved in 1983, they left Louisville and moved to a Hoboken loft… and a few months later, Antietam would play its first Maxwell’s show with a local act playing its first-ever official gig called Yo La Tengo.)
And don't forget the machine that is Josh Madell. Though only an honorary Louisvillian, he brings the only beats that could back the maelstrom that takes place in front of him. Read the whole article here and if you're in the neighborhood, go have a mint julep!
