    BBC Introducing in Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales are joining forces on Tuesday, November 17 to showcase the best in new music from around the UK with a free one-off event in Belfast.

    BBC Introducing presenters Huw Stephens, Rory McConnell (Northern Ireland), Vic Galloway (Scotland) and Bethan Elfyn (Wales) will descend upon Belfast’s Mandela Hall on Tuesday, November 7, to present live music from four hotly-tipped new bands: Two Door Cinema Club; Pulled Apart By Horses; Twin Atlantic; and Save Your Breath.

    Northern Ireland BBC Introducing presenter Rory McConnell says: "It's been such an amazing year for BBC Introducing that we thought it would be the perfect way to end 2009 by celebrating new music in a live environment, and where better to do it than Belfast! BBC Introducing across the BBC and Radio 1 has confirmed its position as the place to go for new music whether you're making it or a fan of it, and now in Belfast all four nations unite for an end of year party in Belfast's Mandela Hall and Huw Stevens, Vic Galloway, Bethan Elfyn and myself can't wait to see you there."

    Tickets for this concert are free and are available by visiting bbc.co.uk/ni/tickets or calling the BBC NI ticketline on 0370 9011227 (UK-wide rate charged at no more than 01/02 geographic numbers: calls may be recorded for training).

    BBC Introducing showcases unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar musical talent from around the UK.

    Introducing with Rory McConnell in Northern Ireland can be heard on BBC Radio One on Thursdays, from 00.00am-02.00am.

    The bands:

    Twin Atlantic (Scotland)
    In the last couple of decades, the city of Glasgow has shone as one of the world's most vibrant and diverse music scenes. Twin Atlantic – a young four-piece whose ambitious debut mini-album, Vivarium, is packed with enormous sweeping riffs, moods that flit from light to shade, and impassioned vocals dripping with gorgeous Scottish vowels – are powering out of that creative hub of a hometown to take on the world.

    Two Door Cinema Club (Northern Ireland)
    Two Door Cinema Club are three people with the help of technology and a thirst for anything quirky. If you were to pose the question: “Where do Two Door Cinema Club live?” And someone was to answer, “Why, Bangor!” That someone would only be 66.67% correct because Two Door Cinema Club are a Bangor-/Donaghadee based electro-pop band. An obvious absence in the rhythm department is humbly filled by an unadulterated Macintosh and the electronic thump from the fourth imperceptible member goes hand in hand with the electro/pop direction. Their music has been loosely compared to the likes of Death Cab for Cutie and Broken Social Scene but without a definitive capacity to be pigeon-holed. Melodic vocals, which hail from all three members of the outfit, infuse with guitar riffs that have been described as “oceanic” and rhythm described as “pulsing”. To get the symbolism out of the way, take your seats; it’s going to be a blockbuster.

    Pulled Apart By Horses (England)
    Recently on tour as support to Biffy Clyro, the band are fabled for taking their tops off and most of the time, their pants too. Tom often likes to vomit during his performances. He blames this on the shear physical exertion. However this is usually down to the smell on stage. James will often climb on to amps and speaker stacks and jump back down again. Lee likes to sweat whilst he plays his drums. On a number of occasions he has made obscene phone calls whilst performing, boasting about his manliness. Rob plays the bass, more often than not.

    Save Your Breath (Wales)
    Save Your Breath are a band from Newport, South Wales, playing honest straight up pop punk. Having racked up shows with the Polar Bear Club, Set Your Goals, Verse, Funeral for a Friend, The Blackout, Kids in Glass Houses, In This For Fun, Maycomb, Dungeons, All or Nothing and The Loved Ones to name but a few, their future certainly looks promising.

    I have it on good authority that the BBC Introducing... crew are really looking forward to hearing your material. Maybe the stuff you're working on with Owen Morris might do. Just a rough demo should be ok - I'm sure your songwriting will shine through.

    Promoters will have the say on this not the bands so I'd go with the official line that says "+18s only"

    I think PABH should get a better blurb; that one makes them sound like twats and doesn't say anything about the music.

    Very true. I don't have much time for wackiness in band bios.

    They were great at the Menagerie on Wednesday night.

    Well...a [i:bcc36f2e35]bit[/i:bcc36f2e35] of wackiness is ok but when your biog just talks about sweat, vomit and taking your clothes off it leaves a lot to be desired!

    That is a complete fabrication. I'd 'eyyeeeeooooo!' instead of Hur Hur Hur. If I was to do a sarky laugh it would be like Jabba the Hut's little mate.

    In fairness I'd say Suicide Dolphin Bombers is the best* name out of the group.

    As far as I'm aware, you should be sent an email with a ticket that you need to print out.

    I'm looking into it with the ticket department, and I'll get back to you with details.

    Any problem, gimmie a pm.

    Also, everyone remember to get down for 7.30! Additional tickets on the door, and things are kicking off early!

    Don't miss out!

    Anybody else getting this problem, just get in touch with me via Steven.Rainey@bbc.co.uk

    Apparently it's a problem with spam filters, but if you've registered for a ticket, you definitely have one.

    It transpires that my 70 year old parents went to this gig, thinking that it was a folk gig to do wtih the United Nations???

    Can I just thank the caring soul who thought to supply them with earplugs.

    My mum's review? "You're all going to go deaf!"


    She was deeply disappointed at the lack of world music.
