The Maine is advancing its show at the soon-to-be-reopened Nile Theatre with this little commercial. The most interesting revelations are:
1. The singer, John O'Callaghan has apparently cut his hair much shorter than we're used to seeing in the band's familiar promo shots.
2. O'Callaghan says The Nile was the place he saw his very first concert.
3. O'Callaghan calls Mesa "a nice place." I agree, but you may not.
4. The impressive stick-to-the-message nature of the clip. O'Callaghan fails to mention his band has a new record coming out in like 3 weeks. We'll plug Black And White for him here instead.
