Voting for the 2012 City Weekly Music Awards is now underway. Check out which bands have been nominated to play and then cast your vote.---
The CWMA band showcases kick off Friday Feb. 3 with two shows, and two shows Saturday Feb. 4, followed by four more the next weekend. The 3rd annual CWMA DJ Spin-off will take place over two evenings, Feb. 1 at W Lounge, and Feb. 9 at The Opium Lounge at The Hotel.
We will have a “How to CWMA” article hitting the streets next Thursday before the shows. There, I’ve described how the bands were chosen by a committee, along with some other pertinent information.
For now, the most important thing is to get the votes rolling in. Online voting began yesterday, and we allow one vote per IP address. You can cast your vote here.
Then, be on the lookout for band profiles on that same page, and more info in print in the CW Live Picks. Follow the action on Twitter at Tweet #CWMA
Voting ends Thursday, Feb. 2. After that, you can vote for your favorite band in person at each showcase you attend.
Important note: We will not be hosting a final showcase this year to keep the festival nice and concise. The in-person votes weigh in heavier than the online votes, so don’t get drunk and give your number out on that little paper square.
