Mayday Parade, Luxor Cologne, 25.02.2019

Mayday Parade 2019 Luxor

Mayday Parade know most Emofans through their debut album “A Lesson in Romantics” (2007). Hits like “Miserable at Best” or “Jamie All Over” still inspire enough people to complete Cologne’s Luxor. Also, the support of the scene newcomer Movements might have caused one or the other viewers of this evening.

During the set of Movements, especially new attention was paid. When asked who had never heard of the band, more than half of those present reported. The band played seven songs of their repertoire confidently, the sound was still fine here.

But with the beginning of Mayday Parade it changed and the sound became unpleasantly loud and audacious. That was difficult to hide. The first song “Never Sure” is at the same time the strongest of the current album “Sunnyland” and makes a good start. However, songs from the debut album were also played early and celebrated far more than the songs of the last albums.

The intro for “Jamie All Over” was a short acoustic medley from former Emohits of friendly bands. Hereby the band underlines once again that they are well aware of their status as nostalgia band and like to use it for themselves. But even newer songs are interspersed again and again and are by no means bad. Bad is just the selection of a cover song that fell on “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye. W a r u m?

One hour later on Mayday Parade, however, nobody went home disappointed. The band put on their show routinely and delivered what the Cologne expected. Hopefully, next time, the sound will be right.

And that sounds like this:
