Be Like Pablo lit up the normally dark Tooth & Claw in Inverness with an electrifying presence that captivated the crowd from the first chord to the final encore.

Support came from Rhoehaisse Clark and The Tuesday Accord.

Rhoehaisse Clark first came to our attention at Woodzstock Festival 2023 and she is the previous winner on the John Preston young songwriter of the year award via the Liam Colgan music fund.

Rhoehaisse’s set was a collection of songs of introspection and storytelling, exploring themes of love, loss, and personal growth with honesty and vulnerability. Accompanied just by acoustic guitar she created an intimate atmosphere that invited the audience to connect on a deeper level.

The Tuesday Accord took us through a sonic landscape that blends indie-rock with elements of folk and alternative. Hailing from Inverness, the band brings a unique energy to the stage that is both raw and refined, with each member showcasing exceptional musicianship that seamlessly weaves together intricate melodies and driving rhythms.

Following The Tuesday Accord, Be Like Pablo wasted no time in launching into their set, immediately setting the tone for an unforgettable night of pure power pop.

Their blend of catchy hooks, infectious melodies were delivered with precision and passion, showcasing the band’s undeniable talent and musicianship.

Lead singer Ewen Watson charmed the audience making everyone feel like they were part of something special, it felt like a house party. The rest of the band was equally impressive, delivering soaring harmonies on tracks like “Find A Way” and by the infectious charm  of “Julianne” and “Do You Wanna Go Surfing?”, which saw the band members joyously bouncing about the stage. In fact, weeks on it is still in my head!

Be Like Pablo provided the perfect buzz to kick start the weekend, blending rock, pop, and a touch of cheesy goodness into a satisfying musical feast.
