Mini-Sketch: “The Maccabees”

February 24, 2013

Recently, I’ve been listening to a whole lot of Maccabees. This band is amazing, and with each album’s release, they only get better. So their music inspired me to do this sketch. For a Song Review of The Maccabees’ Wall of Arms, click here. Madison Atout Advertisements
