Shockwaves NME Awards launch party kicks off

Catch all the action on NME.COM

The Shockwaves NME Awards launch party has kicked off tonight (December 6).

It’s all happening at London’s IndigO2 venue, and you can follow all the action on NME.COM.

Babyshambles will be joined by The Wombats and Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong, who will all be playing live at the bash, while Club NME DJs have just got the night underway with Queens Of Noize and South Central to follow on the decks.

Around 300 NME readers have won tickets to the party, along with the celebrity guests, but if you weren’t one of the lucky few who bagged a place, you can keep up to date by checking back here later on.

We’ll have a dedicated section on NME.COM to keep you updated, with news reports, picture galleries of Doherty and his band and video footage.
