Bands as touring stuff – Friday Fun

Mark the end of Shockwaves NME Awards Tour and with some time-wasting fun

It’s Friday, and as well as playing The Charlatans very loud in the NME office, we’re thinking of bands as the Shockwaves NME Awards tour stuff to waste time until the pub opens.

Yes, tonight (February 22) is the last night of the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour, with The Ting Tings, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong and The Cribs set to take the stage at London’s Brixton Academy.

Anything vaguely tour-related goes, really. Bloc After Party, Soundgarden Man, Tour Busted, Sold OutKast, that’s the kid of stuff we’ve been coming up with so far.

So head to the NME Office Blog now and leave your own bands as Shockwaves NME Awards tour stuff there. Sounds stupid but trust us, it’s addictive…

The Shockwaves NME Awards 2008 are coming soon – and it’s time to have your say. Vote now by heading to NME.COM/awardsvote and you could win VIP tickets to the ceremony, which takes place in London on February 28.
