This just in from brand-new Flip Side blogger Jeff Miranda, a Northeastern student working at the Globe this semester:
Last night I donned my favorite pair of checkered Vans and tightest Hot Topic jeans and headed over to the Middle East Downstairs for a healthy dose of high school nostalgia. Mae (above), an emo-pop-punk outfit from Virgina, blazed through an hourlong set, alternating songs from its new album, "Singularity," released Tuesday, with crowd pleasers like "Suspension" (see the video here) and "Summertime," which of course, elicited hearty group singalongs from the mostly tween audience. (Think Chris Carraba of Dashboard Confessional with a head cold.)
The loudest singing came from me, of course.
