Yesterday was an exciting day for lovers of live music as the line up for the 20th annual NME Awards Tour. Topping the bill are Palma Violets who's raucous live show never fails to live up to it's reputation. The band will hopefully being playing some new material along side tracks from their debut album '180' such as 'Best of Friends' and 'Rattlesnake Highway'. Joining them will be a band best described by Georgie Rodgers on 6 Music as "the rabble-rousing fans of nakedness and danger" Fat White Family. Glasgow rockers The Amazing Snakeheads and Kent punks Slaves make up the line up which will no doubt bring both joy and havoc to the eleven cities it visits.
Dates of the 'NME Awards Tour With Austin Texas' are as follows:
Sheffield, Leadmill (19)
Bristol, O2 Academy (2)
