Interview Magazine: Anything special planned for the U.S. tour?

The Maccabees: We met a New Yorker the other day called The Reverend Billy. He's an anti-consumerist guy who walks around to the Disney stores and bludgeons Mickey Mouse teddy bears or goes into Starbucks with a choir and sing free-trade songs. I met him at an interview the other day in London and I gave him my email because I wanted him to come emcee the gig. I figured I might say it to you and he might read it and come out so I quit bugging him.

Reverend Billy marched in the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island on Saturday (6/20). Later that night, The Maccabees, along with Miike Snow, and Hatcham Social played their first of two NYC shows together. It took place in Williamsburg - at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Round two for the UK bands goes down tonight (6/22) at the much smaller Mercury Lounge. How was the show? And how were Hatcham Social at Don Hill's and Cake Shop? More pictures from MHOW below...

Awesome show, minus the fact that they didn't play "All In Your Rows" or "About Your Dress"... that would have made the evening perfect!

And Miike Snow was pretty fabulous as well!

why wouldn't they play "about your dress" i don't get when british bands come to the U.s and don't play their singles (looking at you foals) how late did they go on?

Very solid performance from the Maccabees at Mercury Lounge show. A pic of mine from that show (no flash) and no cash for a better camera... http://twitpic.com/86pcs

loved the maccabees at williamsburg and mercury (saw them back in 2007 at the knitting factory too). i just wish they played 'latchmere' & 'about your dress' though. any who, they are probably the nicest & most humble bunch of guys youll ever meet...
