“This is the first gig in Belfast we’ve done that hasn’t been at Spring and Airbrake ……. I think we’ve made it” screamed The Maccabees midway through their set.
Well, not quite, they weren’t headlining The Odyssey, so there’s still a bit to go.
I only really know two songs by The Maccabees (both of which I love), and thankfully, they were played. Curiously, they were the first (Love You Better) and last (Pelican) songs on the setlist.
They took the opportunity to try out some new material as well. I enjoyed them. There were people to my right who really enjoyed them.
