Tomorrow (Friday) Bombay Bicycle Club are doing a free live acoustic set for Glasgow's Subcity Radio, taking place in the University Concert Hall.
If you fancy getting up close and personal with the band check out the event:
The set will also be broadcast on Subcity Radio soon.
Ahead of their appearance at the NME Awards tour, the country's latest indie scenesters Bombay Bicycle Club will be popping over to Subcity for an exclusive acoustic set. We're hijacking the University concert hall, and will be laying on a small afternoon musical soiree before they go sweat it out in the Barrowlands in the evening.
The band originally caused a stir after winning Channel 4's 'Road To V' competition, securing the opening slot at V2006. From there a year later they released their début EP to a barrage of press hype and journalistic salivating, being described as "the hottest band to come from North London for quite some time". However the band remained ignorant to the hype, as they continued to finish off their studies, finally leaving school in 2008, walking out of the gates and straight into the loving arms of Young and Lost Club. Now on Island records the band are riding high off their successful début album release and now looking to prove their musical credibility in 2010. They've now landed a place on the often name-making NME Awards Tour. In recent years the tour has featured Florence & The Machine, The Cribs, CSS, Maximo Park and a range of other current household names.
With big things expected, this is a pretty good chance to get up close and personal with everyone's favourite curry-house based band. So come down and bring your CDs, posters and miscellaneous body parts to be signed, and bring the old iPhone for a photo with you getting to hug the lead singer.
For those of you who can't make it, the set from the event will be broadcast on Subcity Sessions, so if you want to know how NME's latest prodigies sound like in front of such an intimate audience, keep an eye on the Subcity Sessions page where you can listen to previous sessions: http://www.subcity.org/shows/sessions.
