We’ve kept this a secret long enough! We’re here to announce the Austin Music Blogger Awards! This event has been carefully coordinated through the hard work of your local Austin Blogger Community: Austin Town Hall, Red River Noise, Ultra 8201, Side One Track One, Austin Bloggy Limits, Pop Press International, OVRLD, and Republic of Austin. We’re working with the excellent folks at Austin Music People, who’ll be running the show with the help of Fender. Not only will there be awards, but also rad bands to play all night long.
Here’s the details:
The doors will open at 7:30 PM on February 27th at SpiderHouse Ballroom. Bands will start at 8:30, with awards in between.
We’ll have Jess Williamson, Magna Carda, Shivery Shakes, Orthy, Mirror Travel, A Giant Dog + a Special Guest.
Austin Music People will present awards for behind the scenes folks such as Best Recording Studio and Best Poster Design. The Bloggers will present awards ranging from Best Band to Best DJ. You can read a full list of the awards and nominees HERE.
Tickets are $12 in advance; buy them HERE.
And, because we know that YOUR voice is just as important as ours, we want you to help us select our Readers Choice Austin Album of 2013. Cast your vote right HERE. Votes must be submitted by 5 PM on Friday, February 21st.
Thanks to everyone for their hard work (especially Jennifer at AMP for putting up with so many different opinions), including Eva at Spider House! We’ll bring you more news as we draw near. Please come out and support the local Austin Music Community. And thanks to our sponsor Fender.
