Shockwaves NME Awards Tour 2010

Sunday, 21st February will see The Academy play host to three top bands as the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour arrives in Dublin.

Headlining the event is The Maccabees, with support coming from Two Door Cinema Club and Funeral Suits. Tickets are on sale for €25 on Ticketmaster.

The Maccabees and Two Door Cinema Club are two bands I like a lot. Two Door Cinema Club have just released their debut album, Tourist History, and it is getting plenty of playtime on my iPod. They were also named on the BBC Sound of 2010 longlist. Funeral Suits are a Dublin band that I hadn’t heard of, but have given them a listen and they sound pretty good.

Check out some of the latest offerings from these bands here.
