moe. Toronto for show of the year? Ottawa kicked it's ass... I don't know how Melonworks or Fat Jebus could be nominated for best new artist, considering they only play on the east coast... Mavericks and Dekcuf are two different venues... I like the idea, but some of your choices are pretty fu©ked up...

I'd suggest a couple of other categories, to recognize acts that tried hardest to break new ground in another country:

Bands Across The Border: Canada -> USA

- nero

- GTB

Bands Across The Border: USA -> Canada

- The Slip

- moe.

- Addison Groove Project

(Feel free to disagree with the nominees and suggest others.)

Aloha,

Brad

Well, I think that's the problem with having a Canjammy Awards... There simply isn't enough going on up here to warrant one... The same four or five bands (nero, GTB, JSB and BNB) are going to be nominated for almost every award, because they're the only ones that toured consistently throughout Canada... The "new artist" category will be subjective, because there are always new bands springing up across the country, but very few have the money or pull to tour all of Canada... As for "show of the year"... What about some of the stuff that went down in BC? I'm sure some sickness came their way, yet to not represent them insults our friends on the west coast... Our scene is too small, it's not even worth debate...

I wasn't going to say anything for a few more weeks but since people are talking about it thought I'd let you know.

Association For Live Music & Performing Arts will be announcing an awards event that'll include all your favourite Canadian jambands....and a few US artists as well.

Stay tuned for more info.

If anyone has any suggestions please send me an email.

cheers
