The Plus Ones @ Maxwell's, Hoboken, NJ 9/9/06

The Plus Ones @ Maxwell's, Hoboken, NJ 9/9/06I love Maxwell's but hate driving through Hoboken, especially on a weekend night, so this had to be a very special show to get me to drive across the river and hunt for parking. Just to see Penelope Houston and Greg Ingraham play together again was well worth the trip but The Plus Ones were also a lot of fun. Half of The Plus Ones are the new rhythm section for The Avengers.

The Plus Ones @ Maxwell's, Hoboken, NJ 9/9/06 The Plus Ones have been around since the late 90's and now feature Joel Reader, Luis Illades, John Speranza, and Luke Powell with Joel being the only original member. Both Joel and Luis are now doing double-duty and playing with The Avengers. The band is currently touring behind their second full-length cd Oh Me Of Little Faith, Right Now and their sound is similar to that of the Plimsouls, Paul Collin's Beat and other early 80's power pop bands.

The Plus Ones @ Maxwell's, Hoboken, NJ 9/9/06The Avengers tour is now over and The Plus Ones are now touring their way back to the West Coast starting with a show tonight in Brooklyn at the Trash Bar.
