Bombay Bicycle Club
The Big Pink
I had guessed The Drums would be opening it, but having Bombay above The Big Pink is quite a strange choice. BP have just wracked up a fairly big - considering the climate - hit with Dominoes, have got more acclaim etc. Bombay second-headlining, when recent years have seen The Futureheads, Arctic Monkeys and The View do it, is just a bit strange. Maccabees headlining is understandable, but they've just played a big tour, done festivals and surely exhausted a large group of people who want to see them? I dunno, the spectacle seems to have fallen.
