Last Sunday, the banks of the Raritan River hosted Rock New Brunswick, a local music festival presented by Hub City Sounds. The usually calm flow of the river was shaken by the energy and excitement brought to Boyd Park by the bands, vendors and fans of local music.

Local DJs spin attention toward Hurricane Harvey victims

This Saturday, Hub City’s DJ-Producer collective will extend its "neighborly watch" to the victims of Hurricane Harvey with a benefit show at NJ Skateshop. Neighborhood Watch, the only music showcase series that partners with local businesses in New Brunswick, will be partnering with Boards for Bros at this Saturday’s free show. They will be collecting cash donations and used skateboarding gear to send to Southside Skatepark in Houston, Texas. “Boards for Bros is an organization that gets skateboards that are damaged or broken, fixes those skateboards, refurbishes them and then gives them to inner-city and urban areas,” said Derrick Braxton, a Neighborhood Watch co-organizer.
