I didn’t have any plans to see The Maine-probably one of the few at Warped who didn’t because they played in front of one of the biggest crowds. I had previously believed them to be a very soft pop alternative band and thought I wasn’t interested in listening to them but on the recommendation of Nick Santino to the crowd at his Acoustic Basement set, I decided to check them out. The lead singer resembled, hauntingly, Kurt Cobain and I spent much of the first song trying to figure out if this was his intention or not. I then got drawn into their set somewhere halfway into their first song. The songs they played were so hard rock I was shocked at how wrong my previous assumptions had been and I was glad I attended.
I included a saturated edit of my photos à la Nirvana.
