With Panelists: Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group), Marissa Paternoster (Screaming Females), Jarrett Dougherty (Screaming Females), & Mike Longo (Bond Street Bar)
Moderator: Todd Abramson (Maxwell's/ White Eagle Hall)
Come join us for a fascinating discussion about New Jersey clubs and venues with some of the people that know them best. Guitarist and author/historian Lenny Kaye kicked off his musical career playing Rutgers frat houses with The Zoo. He has since gone on to tour the country and the world with The Patti Smith Group. His latest book is "Lightning Striking: Ten Transformative Moments In Rock and Roll". Marissa Paternoster and Jarrett Doughtery comprise 2/3rd's of the popular New Jersey based band Screaming Females. They have risen from doing basement shows to selling out venues like White Eagle Hall but they have always stayed true to their roots and vision. Your favorite disgruntled bartender, Mike Longo, is a lifelong music fan and has plenty of insights to share from both attending and working at shows. Moderator Todd Abramson has been a key figure in the Jersey music scene for decades and has moved on from booking and operating Maxwell's to buying talent for White Eagle Hall and alongside Joe HoldFast, creating this September's Frantic City festival in Atlantic City.
