It’s that time: GO Music Awards voting begins

February 26, 2009

GMA_2008LOGOBack for its third year, the GO Music Awards return with some changes that may appeal to artist and fan alike. This time around a panel of consultants–including us–helped shape the ballot of nominees. That way no overwrought Internet campaign can put someone on the ballot that wouldn’t otherwise be there. It also keeps you, the voting public, from having to fill out online forms twice, a process that gets confusing and drawn out after a while. This time, you go to one place, check the appropriate boxes and make your opinion on local music known.

Where do you go to do all this? >>RIGHT HERE<<. Voting began yesterday (2/25) and continues until 11:59 p.m. on March 13. If you wait unitl March 14 or later, then you blew it.

3 Questions With Kesha: Sweetwater Abilene’s J.R. Top

October 21, 2008

As a GO Music Awards “Best Band” finalist and iTunes essentials choice, Sweetwater Abilene has a history of doing things on its own terms and gaining recognition for it. Guest writer Lakesha Bailey sat down with the band’s driving force, J.R. Top, for another of her “3 Questions” interviews that, if our count is right, turned into seven questions… and that’s just what she sent in. J.R. is always a man with opinions and the conviction to speak them. His thoughts on Springfield music, the songs that affect him, telling bands they suck and the mysterious whereabouts of “Shake the Che” follow after the break.
