Great Double-Bill: The Bongos/The Rubinoos

As if seeing Hoboken’s beloved house band The Bongos isn’t enough, a rare stateside appearance by California’s power-pop legends The Rubinoos (who haven’t played the East Coast yet this century) makes this a must-see night. Hey, they’re big in Japan, as the saying goes, as well as Spain. On Oct. 22 in Mount Tabor (Morris County), “At The Tabernacle” will celebrate its 20th Anniversary by hosting both bands, thus a joyous noise—“Revenge Of The Nerds” and “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” included—will be raised. This is almost too good to be true.
