When: Fri., July 17, 11 p.m.-2 a.m. 2009
Somehow, the members of Neighborhood Texture Jam will shoehorn themselves and fans into The Cove Friday, July 17th, for their first performance of 2009.
When NTJ formed in the late 1980s, the 400-square-foot Cove on Broad was known as Fred’s Hideout. Then it became the Beer Joint, before current owner Jim Marshall retrofitted the space with nautical décor and opened the Cove in 2007. The limited space leaves little room for a full band — especially a group like NTJ, which often incorporates stage props like chainsaws, inflatable breasts, and fake blood into the act.
