Darrin Bradbury and Big Wilson River will be joined by other local acts at Maxwell's in Hoboken on Saturday night.
After six months of jumping between living in a Ford Focus, a Virginia hippie farm, and on one occassion, even at a communist cocktail waitress' gun-filled abode in Bloomington, Indiana, he's back – for now, anyway. Darrin Bradbury and the rest of Big Wilson River are co-headlining Maxwell's in Hoboken on Saturday night.

The filming was aided by a number of neighbors who offered the use of their sidewalks, front porches, costumes and dogs to help with the production. The neighborhood mailman even positioned his mail truck as a prop while he delivered mail up and down the street. In October, the band's namesake, Jay Everett, took to Patch to promote a show at Mexicali Live in Teaneck. A friend …
