If you’re in San Francisco, Denver, Dallas, Austin, New Mexico and Arizona, take note of The Maine's small upcoming all-acoustic tour.You can see the announcement and a new acoustic recording in the AP Magazine article.
This is a great band and I can only imagine how good an all acoustic show will be in these small venues. http://wearethemaine.net/tour/
The Wire used the building as a setting symbolic of post-industrial urban decay. But today, with a major architectural intervention—and a grant from Adobe—this building has become a state-of-the-art public school for training future designers.

Here’s a recipe for something interesting: Take a family of four kids. Add music, form a band. Cast Mom as tour manager, with Dad as mentor, chief roadie and sound check guy. Then put them in a van and have them travel all over the US and Canada alongside Australian headliner Tonight Alive. Have them release a great album in the midst of it all so that fans across the country sing enthusiastically to their music. Perhaps it sounds like the makings of a TV show*, but in fact it’s real life Echosmith, an alternative pop band from LA whose catchy songs and stage presence carried them through the entirely of the 41 city Vans Warped Tour this past summer and then onto tours with Owl City and Tonight Alive.
Echosmith are big fans of families seeing music together. Mom/tour manager Linda Sierota, vocalist Sydney Sierota and guitarist/vocalist Jamie Sierota took a few minutes before a recent show to talk about why it’s important to get your family out to see music:
Here’s an Echosmith song, so you can enjoy their music:
Linda Sierota, Tour Manager and Mom: Chicago in Chicago(!) with The Beach Boys.
Sydney Sierota, Lead Singer: Switchfoot in LA.
Jamie Siertoa, Guitarist and Backup Vocals: Switchfoot in LA.
And, some pictures…
