The Maine sends off “You Are OK” via a virtual performance | Review

Arizona-based band The Maine released their seventh studio LP, “You Are OK,” around a year and a half ago, on March 29th, 2019. The band has been working on more new material, but before preparing to release LP8, they decided to bid this album farewell with the “Flowers On The Grave” livestream show. 

The show took place at the Orpheum Theatre and was streamed via a platform called Pillar, where the band’s fan club is, and where the band shared exclusive content and interacted with the fans via an afternoon pre-show stream in preparation for the actual concert a few hours later. Once the clock struck 4:00 P.M. PST, the concert finally began. 

To celebrate the end of the “You Are OK” era, the band started off their set by playing the entire album in full and in order. They’ve played a handful of these songs live before in the past, from singles like “Numb Without You,” “Slip The Noose,” and “My Best Habit” to some of the more underrated tracks on the album like “Tears Won’t Cry (Shinjū)” and the cinematic closer “Flowers On The Grave.” This show was also the first time that two of the songs on this album – “One Sunset” and “I Feel It All Over” – were performed live.

Even after the band finished performing the album in full, the show wasn’t over yet. The band finished out their set with several other songs from throughout their discography, including fan favorites such as “(Un)Lost,” “Another Night On Mars” and “Black Butterflies & Deja Vu” to hidden gems that they haven’t included in their live set as often, like “Don’t Give Up On ‘Us’” and “Bliss.”

The Maine put on a captivating performance, just like they have every time I’ve seen them in the past, and this show was a great send-off for “You Are OK.”
