Waking Lights hail from Northern Jersey and bring with them a sound that is soothing, relaxing, yet subtly powerful. This band is hard to pin down in terms of genre; they go from hard rock, orchestral-tinged blues rock and even manage to throw a cool jazz vibe in some songs. In a word, these guys are eclectic. On Sept. 17 they’re doing a release show for their album The Rabbit Hole at Maxwell’s in Hoboken. $10. 9:30 p.m.
