Andrea Estella is the focal point. Wearing a flowing floral 80’s print top that looks like it was made from an old curtain, the tiny girl surrounded by a band of boys has a big sweet smile and is blanketed by a supernatural turquoise light. Twin Sister is opening for Beirut at South Side Music Hall, lead singer Estella’s tresses currently dyed a sandy blonde, her tousled locks resembling a miss Hermione Granger. It’s a Monday night, but the venue is totally crowded.
Estella keeps her arms to herself and side-to-side steps to the band’s psychedelic beats. She approaches the mic softly, as if there were a stage mom waiting in the wings, shooing her in front of an audience and commanding her to perform. She sings with her hands cupped around her face like a little girl, the only mark of her early twenties being the tattoos all down her left arm. (more…)

All right, I have to admit it. I had never heard of The Maine before seeing the name attached to the likes of Augustana on the poster for the “Boston” band’s summer tour. A fan of Augustana’s since 2005’s Stars and Boulevards, I wrote The Maine off as just some other act that was touring with a band that I was compelled to see in concert. Cool, I thought. If they’re opening for Augustana, they must be good. After ample research, I found that The Maine is a) co-headlining with Augustana (and closing the show, at that) and b) has over 77,000 followers on Twitter. Where have I been? Is some type of cultural phenomenon going on, perpetuated by iTunes, completely escaping my genius recommendations? I still don’t know. But I do know that, after seeing The Maine tear apart the stage at House of Blues Dallas, they kick some serious ass, and deserve every one of those tens of thousands of Twitter followers.
Current album Black & White harnesses a more mature sound departure from their first album (2008 Can’t Stop Won’t Stop) which is weird to say because members of The Maine are so young, I can’t imagine a three-year younger version of them being legally allowed to work. (more…)
