And The Nominees For The 2012 Dallas Observer Music Awards Are...

doma12.jpg
Welcome to Thunderdome. The 2012 Dallas Observer Music Awards poll is now live, and you can go right here and do what America does best: vote on their computer. Or you could go "old school" and find a paper ballot, like the one in this week's issue, then bring it to our November 10 showcase in Deep Ellum, which will feature more than 40 bands in venues like LaGrange, Dada and Trees. Oh, you can buy tickets for that right here. See how easy democracy is?

Peruse the list of nominees, won't you? Over the next few weeks, you'll be getting to know them more... intimately.

No offence to any nominees or the D.O.   Seems like some of these categories are safe and generic.          *No best Dallas area  pod cast  or online broadcasts.                                  

 

Perhaps a much needed  "Most overrated" people in local music awards and some other new categories. 

Most safe Dj /Band,

Wedding band / DJ,

Corporate event Band / DJ.  

Most overrated /hyped Band /DJ

I dress like shit and look poor on purpose  so I must be a serious  music artist award. 

Biggest Douchebag club owner award for local clubs / venues.

Captain Cocaine award  for the biggest coke heads in Dallas music.  

You should be fucking dead,(I.E. GG Allan award ) for the person or band/dj  that is still kicking and is oddly not dead or doing life in prison. 

Worst DJ/Band that oddly still gets booked..   

Pop Music/radio music Dj's who annoys the shit out of everyone with the over the top scratching, we get it you can scratch it's getting old award.   

Girl DJ with best Tits Dallas. (People are looking at them not you and not your horrible music)

Looks good doing it award but really is crap award.

Chain wallet & Doc Martin award for people who are stuck in the 90's.
