Out With: The Maine at The Regent Theatre

The Maine kicked off the first show of their North American headlining fall tour last night at The Regent in Downtown Los Angeles. We were lucky enough to get a peek from both behind the scenes and from the pit! Check out our exclusive photos below.

I first met The Maine when I was 21 years old, as an intern who managed to turn my social media gig at a record label into a photography-related one. I had photographed them at a handful of shows, signings and festivals in between. Fast forward seven years: I showed up at The Regent yesterday with my camera and the Arizona natives were kind enough to remember me from years ago. Their friendliness and the way each record has progressed throughout the years is a valid explanation for their dedicated fans, a cult-like following. When I arrived at The Regent, it was 3PM, and a line of fans had already begun forming.

As the band and crew worked through the 105 degree LA heat to prepare the stage setup and soundcheck, I took candids of the process:

After sound check, I captured portraits of each member behind the venue:

While waiting for their 9pm set, I wandered around the venue, lurked the merch line and overheard a few conversations of fans detailing their first time seeing The Maine. Some said they grew up listening to them, others even traveling across the country to see them for multiple dates.
There's something special about The Maine, and based on meeting them, seeing their live show, they genuinely deserve to be one of the biggest bands in the world.
