Musically, January started 2017 off pretty well. I was incredibly lucky to be invited to the NME Nominations Party as my friend won tickets via VO5s twitter competition and it was an amazing opportunity for the both of us. This year, NME kicked off the awards with an acoustic live set from Biffy Clyro, who just happen to be one of our favourite bands – we both saw them together twice last year.
The event was held at Omeara Studios in London, which in case you haven’t been is a very small space which meant we were able to get incredibly close to our favourite band – fan girl moments definitely happen, without any remorse! We managed to position ourself at the front of the stage to the right, which meant perfect shot of Simon ;).
As it was just a small acoustic set, Biffy Clyro played for about an hour which included a lot of their biggest hits such as: Friends and Enemies; Biblical and Rearrange. The atmosphere itself juxtaposed the “normal” vibe at a Biffy Clyro gig but equally as memorising.
During our time at the venue, we also got to take a picture with an NME Award and vote for this years nominees which include: Biffy Clyro, Blossoms, Years & Years, Kings of Leon, Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and Drake! (Can you guess who I voted for?!)
To the event, I wore a metallic grey slip dress with a black roll neck and high knee black boots, with my suede aviator jacket.
Over the next few months I am off to see: Two Door Cinema Club; Blossoms and Drake, plus any I get to see with work – including Black Sabbath.
