Not Quite the PLUG Awards, but...

Categories: Up On Sun
Chase and his cronies at Bad Stain Records have posted up this year's nominees for the unfortunately named Arizona Ska-Punk Awards (although I know the contraction's snuck its way into common vernacular, I just think that "ska-punk" is a stupid fucking term).

Nonetheless, it is an interesting democratic you-pick-the-winner contest, and it's always interesting to see who's voted in for what category. The nominees are listed here; the actual awards ceremony is sometime after the 2/28 deadline at the clubhouse. these are a few of the more interesting categories, just to give you a taste:

BEST ALBUM:
Zombeast - S/T
Sigma - Violence Speaks Louder Than Words
And the Hero Fails - Empire Smile
Parkway Wretch - Homesick
Job for a Cowboy - Doom

BEST EMO GROUP:
De Sole'
Dear and the Headlights
Lydia
Goodbye Tomorrow
Movie Script Ending

BEST VIDEO:
My Doll - Time
The Dames - Boys and Booze
Job For A Cowboy -
Entombment Of A Machine
Sigma - The Grass Is Greener
Sigma - God Hates Flags

LIFE TIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD:
Sid Copeland
Will Anderson
Tyler King
Leslie Barton
Kimber Lanning

Alright, I confess, I started choking/laughing my ass off when I saw Tyler King nominated for lifetime achievement; he's also up for best promoter, that one makes a little more sense...
