"Review of 10/10 show, Troy NY"

Maggie Mayday opened the evening with a set of their signature retro powerpop tunes. Hailing from Albany, this local trio has a tight sound held together by solid rhythm work, John Brodeur’s razor-smooth vocals and songwriting, and of course the occasional emotive guitar solo. Jenn McCarron had a particularly charismatic evening, punching out bass lines with an energy that the crowd would have done well to match, tossing her hat off the stage mid-song and engaging in fun banter with the audience between songs. Although this was the first time I’ve seen this band live, I guarantee that it won’t be the last. . . . Run Run Run and Maggie Mayday delivered excellent performances that delighted all present, but The Bravery suffered for their callously caustic attitude which was way out of place at such an indie venue. Both opening bands showed certain signs of burgeoning forces to be reckoned with, but despite musical adequacy, The Bravery were a disappointment to all but the very most dedicated of fangirls.

"EQXfest review"

Many of the Albany trio’s honest alternative pop/rock songs would have fit nicely on the soundtrack to a solid, likable independent movie. . . . Festival highlights: . . . “Not Me, Not Now” and “Spit It Out” by Maggie Mayday. . . .

"Maggie Mayday" (2009)



“Pop” is a dirty word in the world of rock music, and Maggie Mayday is out to change that. The trio formed in 2007 when singer-guitarist John Brodeur, bassist Jenn McCarron, and drummer Meghan Tully all hatched from a giant bird egg. Their songs recall the great melodic pop-rock of decades past, with a decidedly modern edge. Maggie Mayday has drawn comparisons to acts like Foo Fighters, Nada Surf, and Semisonic. Look for their debut album this summer.
