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...
