THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 30

We think it’s fair to say that the famous NME Radar Tour that rolls around the UK each year can often be hit (La Roux, Friendly Fires) or indeed miss (The Chapman Family, Towers Of London). We were surprised and most pleased to hear the news, announced a few weeks back, that this September/October’s showcase will be bringing us several of The Recommender’s favourites.

It’s very much something to look forward to and only strengthens the belief that The Recommender blog has it’s finger on the jugular of the new music scene, having blogged several of these artists months ago. Nice.
The highlight will of course be the majestic Marina & The Diamonds with her showmanship, but Yes Giantess will also be well worth catching. Headliners and sweet melody-makers, Golden Silvers, are more established with their debut album, True Romance, having already been released. The unknown live act will be SXSW hits, Local Natives, which we blogged about back here.

We think that this is the strongest ever Radar Tour line up from the regular NME shows. We hope you agree. We suggest that you grab those tickets whilst you can…see you down the front.

    It’s a great line up – even if it shows how ‘off the case’ the NME are, with blogs such as yours (and mine !) writing about many of these bands six months before the NME even mentioned them ! C’mon NME you need to be more on the case !

    Local Natives are stunning live by the way – saw them in London at their first ever UK gig and they are spot on ! Roll on the Brighton and Portsmouth gigs both of which I’m going to.
