NME Shockwaves Awards Shows for 2010 to feature Hadouken!, Miike Snow, The Maccabees and more
It's that time of year when a swathe of gigs are announced under the banner NME Shockwaves Awards Shows. Basically, NME is holding its main Awards Ceremony at Brixton Academy on February 24th but the magazine also organizes several dates featuring nominees or journo favourites prior to the big night.
The first of these have just been announced and tickets go on sale tomorrow morning (Friday 27th) at 9am.
Miike Snow will appear at the London Scala on February 2nd (£10.60) and Hadouken! also visit the Scala on the 3rd (£15.10). Later in the month, Simian Mobile Disco will flash their breakbeat credentials at the O2 Matter on the 20th. The Awards Tour arrives at Islington's Academy on Feb 22nd and will feature The Maccabees (£13.10), then on Feb 23rd, there are a pair of tasty gigs to consider: Girls are playing at the Scala (£10.60) while Yeasayer are giving their all at Heaven (£12.10).
In addition to the NME gigs, Leeds-lovelies and computer-game scrobbling Hadouken! will be doing a sexy wiggle across the country with several dates in November and December. Starting in Southampton (Joiners) on Nov 26th and ending up in Lancaster's Central Library on Dec 6th, the gigs cost a tenner or cheaper - and you can get them by clicking below.
