mmmmmm bop!

the wellmont theatre (in Montclair, NJ!) re-opens as a music venue! 

opening night is…………….mmmmmmmmmmmmmbopsters hanson! 

i have been excited for a while to check out the line-up for the refurbished wellmont, james and i have seen some movies there over the years. i am sure he would remember which ones, but i havent a clue i was too interested in the seats and the architectural details.

before i get into it further, this guy has answered all your questions and mine, including parking, trains, buses, and more:

here is the line-up so far:

  • Nov. 1 — Hanson with Dave Barnes & Everybody Else
  • Nov. 2 — Matisyahu with Flobots and Mishka
  • Nov. 8 — Bill Maher
  • Nov. 11 — The Decemberists with Loch Lomond
  • Nov. 14 — Wolf Parade with Listening Party
  • Nov. 15 — Martin Sexton with Ryan Montbleau
  • Nov. 17-18 — Steely Dan
  • Nov. 19 — Tony Bennett
  • Nov. 22 — Al Green
  • Nov. 23 — Brian Wilson
  • Dec. 4 — B.B. King
  • Dec. 5 — John Prine with Chip Taylor
  • Dec. 6 — Get The Led Out
  • Feb. 13 — Rufus Wainwright
  • p.s. i was thinking oh HA! i will get tix for steely dan for mary jeys and james and if i have to i will come with them, but for smurf’s sake they are a billion dollars, alright, $85-$135! but for reals
  • i would just be buying them, and potentially going for smurfs+giggles, and yacht rock.
  • so no dice steely dan, no dice.
  • (sorry mary and james)
  • let me know if anyone is coming out to montclair to see these bands, or just walking over from your lovely home in montclair, and musicsnobbery, whats your deal? i just found your blog today. i am surprised i havent come across it before. 
  • p.s.s i also learned in my research today that montclair is known in some circles as “park slope west” and it is cracking me up!
