The Maine’s Modern Nostalgia tour kicks off in Los Angeles with Night Riots and DREAMERS

On the first night of the Modern Nostalgia tour, Arizona based The Maine proved that they could effortlessly blend together the loneliness and darkness of their latest record, Lovely Little Lonely, with the sweetness of its predecessor, American Candy.

Before they took the stage though, support acts Night Riots and DREAMERS kicked off the night. Both bands fueled the energy of the crowd and brought their own flair to the show. Night Riots brought a sense of darkness — complete with light-up drumsticks and pumpkins — whereas DREAMERS had everyone on their feet and singing along to the crowd favorite, “Sweet Disaster.”

Finally, The Maine took the stage and played both of their latest albums in full; there wasn’t a single soul in the audience who didn’t know every word to every song. From suit and guitar changes to the effortless interludes in Lovely Little Lonely, The Maine has the ability to bring a completely different theme and energy to each tour and album that they bring into existence. Which leaves me, and I’m sure everyone else in the crowd that night, wondering and looking forward to when The Maine take the stage in Los Angeles once again.
