    Thanks for the kind words, Frank! We had an awesome time! The only negative thing I heard was that people could not hear the awards being announced in the other room. Other than that, it was awesome! Maybe more seating next year too?

      You are welcome Casi. The seating thing was a catch 22 because of the venue. More seats, less people allowed, etc. With seats we would have only had about 350 tickets, blah blah blah. Next year we will most likely have a different venue that can hold more people, with a “one room” scenario. It is one of the changes that we have discussed already :)

    It was a really great show! But since it is an award show, I think that in order to make the actual ballot there should be some criteria to be met as well as the fan votes, so it really is based on both popularity and talent instead of just popularity so the ones who deserve it can actually win.

      This is a primary thing to address in next years process. We will release information on it very shortly.

    It indeed was a great show but I agree that next year maybe the criteria for the awards should be more about talent and not how many friends you have with computers and different email addresses. Great review and Aftershock is a great place. Here’s to next year.

    It was a great night indeed. I want to throw out an apology to my boys in CANVAS. I picked the wrong night to be a lightweight and went home early. I know for a fact these guys threw down hard for what crowd was left.I used to be in this band and one thing I know for sure is that it doesn’t matter if there is 2 or 2000 people in the crowd they will get rocked the same. Canvas was there for the first band of the night and stayed til the end. Thanks for the representation and next time I will remember to eat something during the day in stead of drink alot of gin during the evening!!! Ride the Snake!!!
