Maxwell's was the first venue to take our label or any of our bands seriously and played an important role in the formation of our label. In addition to being home to our first showcase, it was also the first non-DIY space most of our bands ever played, and for most of our bands was they biggest show they had ever played the first time they played there. Todd gave our bands a chance when no one else would, and also let us book shows with ridiculous amounts of bands on them that no one had ever heard of based simply on a "trust me, this will work...I think..." As a venue, it will be irreplaceable. Thank you to Todd along with the Maxwell's staff for everything you have done for our label and the NJ music scene.
Here are the shows that Don Giovanni put on at Maxwells over the years, starting with our first showcase:
Sat. May 30th, 2009 - Screaming Females (return from tour), Shellshag, Pregnant, Mimi And Christian
Sun. June 7th, 2009 -Lemuria, The Measure (SA), Dead Mechanical, Modern Hut
