Shockwaves NME Tour – Live @ Lincoln Engine Shed, 10/02/09

The last time I attended a gig at Lincoln’s Engine Shed the venue was, criminally, only a quarter full. A shame because on this December evening The Bluetones performed a near-classic album to a very high standard. Naturally, the relatively small crowd can be attributed to the fact that a twelve year-old record was being played at a University venue whose populace are unlikely to remember it. Of course, the majority of those students are more concerned with the here and now of music and what better way to see what is “here” and indeed “now” than the NME tour sponsored by Shockwaves, whose hair-styling products may well be popular with the attendees on this wintry February night.
