The TPI awards are like the reverse of the Brit Awards, as it's for the live production industries who make the shows and tours happen. E.G. The PA Hire companies, who provide the sound for the artists - the catering companies, who feed the crew and artists on tour - the trucking companies, who drive the equipment from venue to venue - the security companies, who... You get the idea... Sound engineers, Lighting show designers etc, etc...
Categorised awards, based on public votes, are given out to these companies and people, for one reason or another.
It's a fun, glamorous night, and this year it is being hosted by Suggs!
If you don't know who he is, he fronted a very successful band called Madness.

Today, I'm Most Angry About: Spending all day at work, reinstalling Windows XP Pro on the accountant's poorly PC, but having to install it not once, not twice, but THREE times before it would work!!! Grrr, I love you Bill Gates : P.S. It's now fixed Helen :0)
Grrr-O-Meter Rating: 3/10
Today's Top Tip: An elastic band, carefully stretched over work's accountant's LCD monitor, makes an excellent launching device. Flick one end and off it goes across the room and out the door! A rather impressive range, I'm sure you will agree :0)
