The Maine Get Carried Away in Atlanta, Enjoy Rare Day Off in NYC -- Road Report
The Maine are currently on a cross-country trek with Augustana, promoting their latest album 'Black & White,' and so far, the co-headlining tour has been a blast. How do we know? Because the Arizona rockers have been checking in with JSYK all along the way.
In their second tour blog, bassist Garrett Nickelsen explains that he and drummer Pat Kirch got a little too excited while on stage in Atlanta, and their stage antics resulted in some not-so-awesome damage to their equipment. The guys took it all in stride, though, moving on to a great day off in New York City. Read about The Maine's travels and check out new photos from their second week of tour below.
Hello intergalactic web! I'm glad to see we all didn't die in the rapture. We are a little over two weeks into this tour and it just seems to be getting better. Every show has been such a blast. Pat and I sorta got carried away in Atlanta -- I threw my bass at his drums while he was pushing them over. I got a hole in the back of my bass and he got a broken high hat stand...it's all in the name of rock 'n' roll, I guess. Kinda dumb now that I think about it.
We had a day off in New York City, which never really seems to happen. Most of us went over to SoHo to check out some shops. We quickly left because everything is so darn expensive. Later that night we met up with Augustana and the Austin Gibbs boys for some great Italian dinner.
All the shows have been really great and I can't wait to play some more. We head to Canada in a few days, which is always a great time. I got to go soundcheck, but have a great week and I'll post more soon. -Garrett
