NME show

North London's art-deco paradise at Koko will host the annual Club NME New Years Eve Party. Last year's gig was a huge success and this year's looks just as tasty. Tickets cost £35 for 3 bands and 2 DJs, all starting at 9pm. Get in now before the tickets mysteriously evaporate into the ether.

You know what it's like trying to decide what to do for the biggest party-night of the year - that last minute panic because you and your mates can't agree a venue, extortionate entry prices (especially in cities) and the usual brawling and fried chicken battles afterwards. I must be going to the wrong places! Club NME have done all the planning so that you don't have to so why not make live music your 'besht mate' at the Midnight hour?

Reverend and the Makers unleashed their latest album "A French Kiss in the Chaos" back in July (reaching a respectable Top 20 position). Their most famous song is the anthem "Heavyweight Champion of the World", a tune that evoked the good old baggy days. Support is supplied by the Camden hopefuls with a French flavour in the name, "Ou Est Le Swimming Pool?" who have just released a new single, "Dance The Way I Feel", a perky electro-crash of a tune, and Example whose debut "Watch The Sun Come Up" did the biz a month back! Add in DJs Ed Wilder and Jeff Automatic and a half-decent bar and you have a top night. Get in!
