The Maine

This year, I accidentally discoverd my favorite band. The Maine were having a free tour back in September, and with me being an avid concert goer, I naturally just had to go. At the show, I absolutely fell in love with everything. The sound, the look, the people, the message; it all seemed too good to be true. Afterward, the band did a free meet and greet, and since then, I've been hooked.

When the band announced their 'A Couple Nights in Texas' tour, I almost immediately bought my tickets. Luckily for me, they were performing over spring break, and since they weren't coming to Dallas, I drove all the way to San Antonio to see them perform. I brought a friend along, and the trip brought her and I closer, as well caused her to fall just in love with The Maine as I did.

When we arrived, we actually both bumped into the guys walking to the venue. So, we walked with them. It was nice to get to see them again so early, and it made for great conversation while we waited five hours in line.

Once time came for doors to open, we rushed inside and got barricade. I enjoyed both local opening acts, and I loved them both so much, that I actually continue to listen to them to this day. The best act, of course was The Maine, though. I've never felt as home as I do when I'm standing in a room, singing along to their songs with people who love them just as much as I do.

Afterward, they had their usual free meet and greet. This time, I got to meet all five guys, instead of just two. I wasn't rushed like I was back at Free for All. I took all the time I needed, and it was like hanging out with old friends.

Honestly, my entire freshman year was made because I discovered this band. They truly have made me a better person, more comfortable with myself, and introduced me to some of the best people I will ever meet. I am eternally grateful for them.
