The Sky Report will be on hand for tonight’s 2008 Plug Independent Music Awards, featuring a headline performance from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. Cave is the recipient of this year’s Plug Impact Award (awarded to Stephen Malkmus in 2007). The event will take place at Terminal 5 in NYC, with St. Vincent, Jose Gonzalez, and Dizzee Rascal also slated to perform. Swedish disco princess Sally Shapiro (nominated for two Plug Awards) will serve as the guest DJ.
Even though we weren’t nominated for Music Blog of the Year (hey, maybe next year!), this does mark the first time we’ve ever attended an awards show. Exciting indeed. View a full list of this year’s nominees here.
You can watch the awards simulcast live tonight at 8:00PM at www.delllounge.com/music/plugawards.
