Shockwaves NME Awards Shows 2011: Los Campesinos! + Summer Camp
The iconic NME Awards Shows kick off in 2011 with a superlative line-up that will see them taking over London, setting the musical agenda for the year ahead.
Featuring Carl Barat, White Lies, Caribou, Crocodiles and recent NME cover stars Warpaint, amongst a host of the most exciting acts around, the shows run from February 1st and continue throughout the month, building up anticipation for the legendary NME Awards on February 23rd.
Spread across some of London's best music venues, the NME Awards Shows are set to make a huge impact on the capital's live scene, with a month-long mix of live music from the best influential, established and cutting edge acts around.
This event takes place at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Celebrating a bratty, tongue-in-cheek viewpoint and a spunky indie punk style similar to Art Brut, while applying an assortment of instruments akin to Architecture in Helsinki, Los Campesinos are a six piece indie pop band formed in Cardiff in 2006. When the band first emerged on the indie pop scene, they were pigeonholed with the 'twee pop' movement, as a result of their lively, joyous music. The band have worked hard since their 2008 debut, 'Hold On Now, Youngster', to shake the image of this and have now adopted a new darker guise. They cite obsessions with death and football as their influences.
