It’s nearly time to roll out the carpet which the organisers got on the cheap from the Meteor Music Awards now that they’re finished with it. On Thursday night, the first ever Digital Socket Awards will be handed out at a swish(-ish) ceremony at the Grand Social, Dublin 2. The DSAs are Ireland’s first ever music awards’ event where the contenders were nominated by you, the public, and decided by us, 26 Irish music bloggers including OTR.

You’ll find a full list of the shortlists in the various categories here and the winners will be announced on the night. Aside from all the gong-giving, there will be live sets from Meljoann, Groom and some very special guests who may or may not be on one of the shortlists. If you want to go along, tickets are a tenner (plus booking fees) and all profits go to Aware.

The folks who’ve put the Digital Socket Awards in motion are Peter Nagle, Ronan Hunt-Murphy, Naomi McArdle and Aidan Cuffe. Having had experience of this kind of thing before, I reckon all four can’t wait for Friday morning to come along and normal life can resume. Best of luck to them with the event – and best of luck to all the nominees.
