DOMA XXII: And The Nominees Are...

Thumbnail image for DOMA2010.jpg
Well, we did it. Just minutes ago, we reached 300 followers on Twitter for our @DOMATweets account. Which means, as promised, it's time to reveal the ballots.

After the jump, feel free to peruse the ballot for your 2010 Dallas Observer Music Awards. And, in the comments, go to town on your thoughts.

But, first, here's how it came to be: This year, 70-plus members of the local music community (journalists, bloggers, booking agents, club managers, producers, DJs, publicists, etc.) took part in our nomination round, filling out a form in which they could nominate up to five acts per category. We here at DC9 then compiled those nominations, and the most-nominated bands for each category are the ones who have made it onto the ballot.

Official voting for this year's awards begins on June 10, when ballots start running in our print edition and online. Open voting will run from that start date until Saturday, July 17, the night of our DOMA Showcase, which this year, will take place on various stages around Deep Ellum. The winners will then be announce in a live, free-to-attend event taking place at the Granada Theater on Tuesday, July 20. Those names will again be announced in a cover story package set to run in the Observer issue that comes out on July 22.

For now, it's time to grovel, boast, brag and hash out the ballot in the comments below. So have at it.

Oh, and keep following that @DOMATweets account on Twitter. We'll be leaking more and more info about DOMA XXII exclusively from that account for the next few months. You'll want to keep following it, that's all I'm saying.

OK, now, onto the ballot...
