Dirty Pretty Things are the latest big name band to join the increasingly impressive list of performers at the University of Lincolnís Engine Shed.


The £6million student centre, which opened a week ago in time for the Student Unionís Graduation Ball, has already played host to Embrace who opened their latest tour with the first live music gig at the new venue.


Dirty Pretty Things, who feature former Libertines man Carl Barat, are scheduled to headline the Engine Shed on Tuesday 12 December.


The band flew into the UK charts in the spring with their debut single Bang Bang Youíre Dead going straight in the UK Singles Chart at number 5. Wondering, the bands third release from their album Waterloo to Anywhere is due for release on Monday.


By the time Dirty Pretty Things arrive in Lincoln they will be following a long list of other established acts on the Engine Shed stage, with The Charlatans, Beautiful South, The Zutons, Cooper Temple Clause and The Damned all lined up to appear at the venue in the coming months.
