I went to see The Maccabees for the 6th time this year tonight (07/12/12). They were supporting The Black Keys at Metro Radio Arena. I actually only went to see them, and they were incredible as always. It was nice being able to get near the front too to have a dance about! It was a shame that a BK’s fan poured their pint over me and my friend like- jokes on them though, we just carried on singing and dancing…and they wasted their money and drink-HA!
We left after Maccabees to go round the back to see if we could catch them. We waited, talked to the security guard- we were the only 2 there, everyone else was watching Black Keys. My friend, Steph, tweeted Maccabees to ask if they’d come out, we waved at them too when they looked out their dressing room window…then got a tweet back saying they’d be down! AHHH.
Orlando, Felix and Hugo came down and introduced themselves to us, gave us hugs, got photos, talked…they’re the politest, nicest, most genuine band I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting- hence why my tumblr is named around them!
When someone asks me who my favourite band are, I tell them I don’t have one- I have three. The Maccabees, White Lies and Delphic. I’ve been lucky enough to meet all 3 and it’s nice not to be disappointed and to see that they actually appreciate their fans.
It’s been a great night. I’m ever so happy.
