It's been a good twelve months for Friendly Fires. They played a series of storming festival sets over the summer, impressed a lucky Roundhouse audience as part of the iTunes Festival - and topped everything off nicely with a nomination for the Mercury Prize.
To celebrate this eventful 2009, the dance-rock-carnival group are to curate a big, late night party at The Coronet
on 11 December. It'll run from 10pm - 5am (it's ok, it's a Friday) and, predictably, the band themselves will headline the Elephant and Castle venue.Support will be provided by fellow Mercury nominees The Invisible
and there'll be a load of other stuff going on too. Check the full line up
on the band's website.Although this gig's slap bang in the run up to Christmas, go ready for a carnival. Expect drummers, costumed dancers, confetti and more - the works, basically, all intended to create a euphoric atmosphere that'll sweep you away. It's what Friendly Fires do best and we reckon they'll go all out for this one.Friendly Fires play The Coronet on 11 December. Frustratingly, tickets were available
until just before we published this article, but have since sold out. It's worth checking
every now and again though, as extra tickets for shows do sometimes come up. (Image / serhio under a Creative Commons Attribution licence.)
