Thanks to the grand fine weather we’re having at the moment and some interesting photos which the organisers have acquired, all 10 acts who have been nominated for this year’s Choice Music Prize will be performing at Vicar Street on February 27th.

Is this the first time in the history of Irish awards and prizes that all those nominated have turned up on the night? We think so. Harry Crosbie is going to have to build an extension to the venue to make sure all the bands fit in.

In other Choice Music Prize news, The Irish Independent’s Day & Night supplement ran a big roundtable interview/state of the nation piece last Friday around the awards. Some choice quotes in the piece, especially on radio, like this one from Paul from The Flaws on 2FM:

We did the 2FM Tomorrow Tour. We had a single out when we did that tour and we couldn’t get it played on 2FM. They were saying that they couldn’t playlist it because it wasn’t suitable for daytime listening. It’s pathetic — it’s a f***ing radio station.

More Choice stuff (that self-interest button is still on, right?), here’s a bunch of interviews which the folks at Cluas have conducted with 8 of the 10 nominees.
