Emo rock group The Maine takes a page out of Taylor Swift’s book and does their own version of an “Eras Tour” for their Sweet Sixteen show at Crystal Ballroom on November 18. Words and photos by Jenny Shackleton.

The Sweet Sixteen Tour celebrates the 16 years The Maine have been together as a band with a set list full of their greatest hits from every album cycle. As a Warped Tour Girlie, this was everything to me and by the looks of the venue, I was not the only one who felt this way. Portland-area millennials brought out their skinny jeans and black vans for one night of dancing and singing along to the songs they blasted on their iPod Touches in high school.


Jenny Shackleton (she/her) is a photographer based in Portland, OR, originally hailing from Philadelphia, PA. Her love for live music started over 15 years ago after seeing the Jonas Brothers perform on their Burning Up tour in 2008 and the rest is history. As a naturally shy person, it’s surprising she feels so comfortable at concerts with hundreds of people attending, but has always believed that they are special, somewhat liminal, spaces. Everyone is there for the same reason: to have the best night and see artists pour their souls’ onto the stage. That is what Jenny likes to capture in her photos. Jenny enjoys spending time outside with her partner and their dog, watching movies, and owning way too many sneakers.
