JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound at #HotelVegan (more by Amanda Hatfield)
JC brooks & The Uptown Sound

Call Maxwell's the unofficial New Jersey headquarters for the Big Apple BBQ. The Hoboken venue will host three of the six artists scheduled to bless the Manhattan festival devoted to woodsmoke in the days surrounding that weekend, each with headlining shows.

First up is JC Brooks and The Uptown Sound, who will hit Maxwell's on June 9th. Tickets for that show are on sale. The show is one of a few extended weekends scheduled for the band, who are mainly playing East Coast/Midwest dates throughout the summer (including XPoNential Music Festival), save for a trip to Bumbershoot 2012.

Similarly, Maxwell's on June 11th will be the home for Alejandro Escovedo, one of several area dates for the singer-songwriter. Tickets for that show are on sale. You can also catch Escovedo at the Clearwater Festival, the Stuyvestant Town Oval on July 28th and Bowery Ballroom on June 5th for his record release.

And lastly, the venue will also host Southern Culture on the Skids on June 10th. Tickets for that show are on sale too.

All three bands' upcoming tour dates are listed below, along with some videos.
