Award Tour: The JR Awards


So it appears to be music award season here in Dallas, and we've decided to get in on the action. Of course the Dallas Observer awards are the big ones, but we thought that our readers might want to choose their local favorites without having their votes diluted by Flickerstick and Johnny Lloyd whatever fans. So heres the scoop:

For the next two weeks we'll be taking votes for the J.R. Awards. There will be eight categories, and you can vote by posting your choices in the comments section of this thread, which we will create a permanent link to on the sidebar. Post with your name, or as anonymous, or whatever you want. I think you might have to register with Blogspot to be able to post comments, but if you do its really not that hard and you shouldn't be so lazy. Just register and vote ya jerk.

We'll also be having a contest: submit your own award category and nominate a winner. The category can be anything as long as its related to local music. The creator of the funniest category shall receive two free tickets to a Dallas/Denton show TBD later, and will be famous among the few hundred people that read this blog. We can assure you that your prize will be for a show that we would want to go to , and we'll probably give you a list of a couple bands to choose from... we just aren't sure which ones yet. If you create a category, you'll either have to post with your name or send us an email telling us who you are.

Maybe everyone will like this idea, or maybe no one will even respond. But its worth a shot. You can vote in all categories, just one category, or whatever. We don't care. Here they are:

Best New Act

Sure, I am a bit prejudiced with bands I've worked closely with in the past year. In the same respect, I've seen their progression & am sincere. If I get ambitious, I could do this same list to cover the Austin area. I'm refreshed at the great stuff coming out of there lately!

Best Band Overall: The Black Arm Band
Worst Band Overall: Strangleweed
Best New Act: Blackheart Society (also, Prayer for Animals, formerly The Veldt)
Best Venue: The Cavern, runners up: Double Wide & Darkside
Worst Venue: Tom Cats
Best DJ: DJ Tiger Bee
Best Experimental Group or Musician: Mazinga Phaser II/Wanz Dover
Best Way to Get Publicity: Write a bulletin on myspace bemoaning the Dallas music scene & threatening to never play here again. In turn getting more people talking about you now than ever. Good move!
