On April 11, 1987, Syndney Australia's Celibate Rifles ventured all the way to Hoboken to play at Maxwell's! As a venue, Maxwell's was ahead of the curve when it came to booking up and coming acts from down under - including New Zealand. The local record shop, Pier Platters, had an extensive stock of Australian and New Zealand imports, which kept the demand for live performances from down under bands quite high! Celibate Rifles. The Celibate Rifles played a great 45 minute set to the satisfaction of all in attendance!
