Band of Horses in the Olympia were a much awaited gig for me – I’d bought the tickets months previously having wanted to see them for a couple of years. I’d come across their song The Funeral which sound tracked one of Danny MacAskill’s amazing BMX stunt videos. The Olympia was awash with plaid and the band were pitch perfect throughout, delighting the audience every step of the way. A beautiful cinematic backdrop and an encore from one of the boxes cemented them as one of my highlights of 2012.
