Music Awards Ballot 2018

Music Awards Ballot 2018

All Grown Up

Just because Fort Worth is all grown-up now doesn’t mean we can’t acknowledge some of the better musical offerings of the last 365 days. That’s what our annual Music Awards are all about. It’s a celebration, bitches. These days, our Music Awards (the 21st time we’ve done this, by the way) feel less instructional and more festive. You know, the kind of thing a big city does.

I’m sure we missed a few bands, albums, and songs, but the list below represents what we thought were the brightest spots of 2018. The ballot will appear on our website 24/7 and run in the print version of our paper over the next month starting this week. We’ll count the ballots right up until the day after the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards Festival, which takes place 4-10pm Sun, Jun 24, at eight venues on the Near Southside.

As always, the venues will be staffed by friendly volunteers selling this year’s iteration of our annual compilation album for $5 a pop. Featuring Abraham Alexander, Convoy and The Cattlemen, Peter More, Sur Duda, and seven others, Frequencies, Vol. 9 was recorded live over two days at Eagle Audio Recording Studio. Proceeds from the sale of the album will benefit a worthy local charity to be named soon. Good luck to all of the nominees, and thanks to everyone for voting. ––
