NME Awards Tour makes it to Norwich!

Alice Glass making crutches Rock n Roll!
I arrived at Norwich UEA on Friday night with the queue of excited fans stretching back to Congregation Hall all looking forward to seeing Crystal Castles, Magnetic Man, Everything Everything and The Vaccines on the NME Awards Tour.

The Vaccines opened the night putting smiles on a lot of faces with their short sharp indie sound. They put a lot of power and energy into their set which will get all Indie fans buzzing with excitement.

There's something in the air it must be Everything Everything. Move those dancing feet as you float across the floor. I love Everything Everything, they are a great band who take you to a good place in your head with brilliant tunes.

Magnetic Man filled the UEA stage with all their hardware and soon they had stolen everyone's soul. There set was full of energy that had us all hitting the dance floor hard. They reached a high when they turned all the girls into Katy B's! In the end the UEA LCR was like a field on the M25. Dubstep has arrived and we're all hooked.

It was a complete wall of noise when Crystal Castles made their entrance with Alice Glass on crutches. Only Alice could make crutches Rock n Roll. Crystal Castles are Digi-Punk Gods. Believe whatever you want to believe but it seems that they are like a Modern Art statement in the name of Rock n Roll. It was another awesome performance from Ethan Kath and Alice Glass, they always seem to deliver live leaving a trail of destruction behind them.

Once again we have to thank NME for putting on another brilliant tour. No doubt we will do it all again next year.
