I’m behind on my life right now, but I’m back on top, so hello.
Pretty much don’t need to tell you that I thought The Maccabees were absolutely amazing on Thursday night, probably the best that I’ve ever heard them sound. It was a bit of a shame because Moon had bought us circle tickets and for some reason we weren’t allowed to stand up at all (but we all did at the end and it was amazing to collectively feel so much love for the band). Despite this, it was pretty much a perfect set, with them playing my favourite song from each of their albums, which is always a winner when going to a gig.
They were supported by the Trailer Trash Tracies, who were a bit of a disappointment, with songs mainly consisting of self-indulgent wailing and an off-time drumbeat. They were only on for half an hour but it does make me a bit sad that I didn’t get another Josh Weller or Mumford and Sons out of this show. I don’t want to seem like this was in anyway a big deal, because it definitely wasn’t, anyone could have played and it still wouldn’t have taken away from my excitement over seeing The Maccabees again.
Thank you so much, Maccabees for putting on such a brilliant show and I’m already looking forward to seeing you in June at Alexandra Palace. ♥
In relation to my previous Maccabees-related post, I did pick up another t-shirt, so that’s six now, but I got Bolognese sauce all over it when I wore it yesterday so I can’t share it with you. I also got my hands on one of their awesome fabric posters which I’ve put away safely and am waiting to put in a frame.
I didn’t take many photos because I was too busy being in awe and swooning, but here are some that I did take.
‘I don’t mind telling you, that I was a bit nervous about tonight. We’ve been hear before but it was different then, there’s a lot more to it, with a new album. It’s the best album, in my opinion, you can ask theirs later…’
