Back in the USA! Nick Cave to Play Plug

A lineup has been announced for the 2008 Plug Independent Music Awards, scheduled for March 6 at Terminal 5—and what a lineup it is! Comedian Patton Oswalt is hosting the show, which will feature performances by nominees Dizzee Rascal, Jose Gonzales, and St. Vincent. But the highlight of the evening will undoubtedly be an appearance by Australia’s legendary Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, who haven’t played a show in the U.S. in eons. Mr. Cave, who is readying a new album, is this year’s Plug Impact Award Honoree, and is also up for male artist of the year. To top it all off, tickets are only $10, though it’s still not clear when exactly they go on sale.
