Want to know where we’re going each week so you can join us?  We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time.  Here’s what is on our radar this week. We can’t guarantee that we’ll go to all these places but there’s a good chance we’ll be at some of them.  Support local arts or get outside and do something with us!

about the bands :  Big Neil is an indie folk rock band from Bergen County, New Jersey. Started in 2010 as a way to kill time, their first album, “What’s the Big Neil?,” was self-released in 2011. Shorty after the release of Big Neil’s debut, Tom Warren joined The Front Bottoms and Big Neil took a brief hiatus. After a couple years of touring, Big Neil returned with the well received EP “Do Puppies Dream Of Herding Sheep?,” released by Seagreen Records in 2014 then re-released by Something Wicked Records in 2016. Big Neil is known as a departure from Warren’s work in the Front Bottoms, often citing Paul Westerburg, Pavement, and Rod Stewart as influences. Big Neil is currently preparing to release the follow up to ‘What’s the Big Neil?’ with the next full length, ’Never a Full Moment’ due March 30th.
Check out the Big Neil’s new single, ‘My Brain’. ‘Never A Full Moment’ available now! Grab your cassette via bandcamp or the march table!
