This event is all ages
The Maine is an American rock band from Tempe, Arizona formed in January of 2007. Their first
full length, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop was released July 8th, 2008 to critical acclaim. Reaching
number 4 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums, The Maine quickly became a household name.
Their sophomore album, Black and White, saw the beginning of the band’s departure from the
steadfast pop heard on their first release, and showcased a more cohesive rock sound. Their
major label debut peaked at number 16 on the Billboard Top 200 which led to their first headlining
tour in 2010. Following a world tour in 2011, The Maine announced the release of their third
album, Pioneer, which was released independently and selffunded after their decision to part
ways with Warner Bros. Records. With Pioneer debuting at number 11 on the Billboard Top
Alternative chart, The Maine solidified their position as an indie rock band to be reckoned with.
The Maine’s success has lead to tours with the likes of Taking Back Sunday, New Found Glory,
Good Charlotte and a coheadline tour with Augustana, as well as extensive dates on the Vans
On June 4th of this year, The Maine is set to release their fourth fulllength album, Forever
Halloween. The record will be released independently in the US in partnership with their
management team, Eighty One Twenty Three, and will be released via Rude Records in Europe,
UK, Southeast Asia, Australia and Japan. The album, produced by Brendan Benson of The
Raconteurs, will be the band’s second consecutive selffunded release following their major label
The album was recorded live through analog tape without the use of computer editing techniques
which have become the standard in modern recordings. This gave the album an energy that
cannot be captured any other way than 5 people performing in a room together. "The tape
machine was like having an older, wiser, intimidatingly glowing woman in the room” says
frontman John O’Callaghan on the experience. “We were all meeting her for the first time, but
she already knew everything there was to know about the five of us. In no single way judgmental,
but she sniffed out the bullshit and wouldn't allow us to be anyone we are not. We are now better
men for meeting that woman."
In support of their new album, the band will embark on a US tour from June to July. The Maine
will take the stage headlining the first ever “The 8123 Tour”. Look for Forever Halloween June 4th

A Rocket To The Moon
"Rooted in the tradition of late-'90s alternative rock and the pop-influenced sounds of emocore, A Rocket to the Moon was formed in 2006 in Braintree, MA. Essentially the brainchild of Nick Santino, the group started off as a solo project, with Santino handling all the instruments himself and functioning as a one-man band for two years. After releasing a pair of independent records, Santino signed with Fueled by Ramen and began touring with the label's roster of emo-pop bands; he also pieced together a proper lineup to help play the material in a concert setting. As a result, Rocket to the Moon morphed into a full-fledged group with multiple members, and the group made its official debut with On Your Side, which was released in October 2009. Four of the album's songs were later re-recorded in different arrangements for the Rainy Day Sessions EP, which featured the female country duo Larkin Poe on each track." - Chris True, AllMusicGuide
This Century is a pop rock band from Tempe, Arizona. The members are Joel Kanitz (vocals), Alex Silverman (bass), Sean Silverman (guitar) and Ryan Gose (drums)
Brighten is an up and coming band with a lot of potential. They've got catchy lyrics and without a label they've been doing pretty well on their own. There is not only one way to interpret Brighten and who they are. Take Jimmy Eat World and stir in a little James Taylor, add a little Get Up Kids and top with a pinch of Phil Collins and out comes Brighten. They are rock and roll boys that you can take home to mom. They also perform amazingly.
