The Full List of Ghosty Winners

The 1st Annual Ghosty Awards

First of all, I have so many thank you’s to give, as there are so many people who helped make last night something very special.  Thanks to the entire staff at The Underpass for being gracious and wonderful hosts, and for making sure everything went smoothly.  Obviously, I have to thank the musicians.  Camille Schuh, Leah Lane of Moon Waves, $kaduf, (monkeysphere), Meia, and Rahim Quazi all put on killer sets that helped demonstrate why I love their music.  And of course this night would have been a total wreck were it not for the guidance of my trusty hostess, Veronica Young of Hungover With V.  Finally, thanks to everyone who came out, has supported the blog, or just loves local music.

But you didn’t come to the blog to hear me gush, did you?  No. all you want to know is who won.  That’s OK.  Below is an alphabetical listing of all the winners, as well as the awards they won.  One quick explanation: the Ghost’s choice award was determined by me alone, whereas the Ghosty Award was decided by popular vote.  So here we go…
