For any acts who have won an award, you should come down to Three Links tonight to pick up your award. It’s worth noting that some acts listed here “might” win additional awards tonight. Not saying who, but don’t think that just because you’re listed here means that will be your only award.
Besides, EVERYONE should be coming out to Three Links tonight. The crew at Just DIY Promotions helped me curate this a fabulous lineup of music, featuring The Delzells, Andrew Delaney, Chris J Norwood, and Pool Lights, and it’s hosted by the one and only Veronica Young (Hungover With V). Cover is a mere $5, and the ceremony benefits Foundation45, a cause dear to The Ghost’s heart. Good times, good music, and a good cause. What more can you ask for?
