Show review for Mae's Goodbye, Goodnight Tour
Show review for Mae's Goodbye, Goodnight Tour
11/12/10 at 08:01 PM by Jenny Tate
Time travel is not possible. Despite what my repetitious viewing of the Back to the Future trilogy and Donnie Darko may suggest, I believe this to be true. A time, once passed, is gone forever. No matter how hard I wish, I can’t hop in my DeLorean, gun it to 88 mph and shoot back to a simpler time when I was a student, under the comfy financial umbrella of my parents, and had college ahead of me (and with it, the stability of knowing what the fuck I was doing with my life).

But it seems like there might be one slight exception to this rule. They say that scent is the strongest trigger for memory, but I am inclined to disagree. There is nothing – and I mean NOTHING – that can transport you as effectively as a song.

Do you live in Seattle or were you just there? I was at that show and it was one of the better nights of my week.

Haha, I was the fan he moved onto right after you. I loved what he said about the band breaking up.

That show was amazing. Everything a Mae show could/should be. As much as I enjoyed the multi-sensory things they used to do, it was awesome to just have it be about the music. And like you said, it was like being transported back to my youth when I first listened to Mae. Fantastic review

This review made me cheese. haha I enjoyed them on this last tour as well.

This review also made me laugh out loud. My friend, who saw mae for the first time on this tour and has since become a fan, delivered the same exact line to each of them at the Philly show. They laughed. We laughed. Then they shrugged and we frowned.

Either way, I enjoyed both this tour and this review. Thanks for this.

Funny you mentioned Taking Back Sunday. When I first saw Mae back in high school, I was blown away. Mainly because they were considered one of the mellow bands I was into at the time. But live in Detroit, they sounded more like Tell All Your Friends, upbeat and absolutely amazing live.

Destination: Beautiful will always be a classic of our age~ generation. :) Glad to hear it was good!

Sorry, I didn't keep track of every song. I'll keep that in mind for the next show I go to though.
