Live: The Maine & Augustana at Revolution, May 18
With Augustana, Austin Gibbs and Hugo
Revolution, Fort Lauderdale
Wednesday, May 18, 2011
Better than: Watching the aged and out-of-sync Backstreet Boys attempt a clumsy comeback.
The Maine's headlining show at Revolution last night was indicative of how much their fame has grown. The young Tempe, Arizona, act blazed onto the scene almost four years ago with a sound akin to many pop-punk boy bands on America's Top 40 radio stations. But young teeny bopper fans have latched on to their skinny jeans and shaggy hair nonetheless.

On three previous visits to the venue, the guys opened for opened for All
Time Low, Cobra Starship, and then Never Shout Never, respectively. In fact, lead singer John O'Callaghan was arrested outside of Revolution in 2009 after a gaggle of girls prevented him from following an impatient officer's orders to clear the street outside the venue.
This time the Maine wasn't a measly opening band only there to get the crowd riled up for someone better. They co-headlined along with arguably better-known Augustana.
Austin Gibbs (far right) serenades the crowd with his glorious man-stache.
