Digital Socket Awards
The Digital Socket Awards are an awards ceremony with a little bit of a difference. With a combination of public voting and a panel of 26 highly-respectable bloggers and music writers from all over the country (including myself), the DSAs have pulled together some of the finest acts in the country and decided to give them the kudos they deserve. The awards will be handed out on Thursday night in The Grand Social in Dublin, with nominees Groom, Meljoann and a special guest all performing on the night. Comedian Gareth Stack will be hosting the occasion and there will be a bunch of DJs playing after all the trophies are distributed, including no-wavers Logikparty and Aoife Barry of 2XM’s Sweet Oblivion. Tickets are just ten euro and a limited amount will be available on the door. All the proceeds are going to AWARE so you know your precious tenner is getting put to good use. But seriously, who wouldn’t want to be in a room with over twenty bloggers? See you there?
