Wow...Stop Light Observations only got nominated for up and coming artist of the year?!? I guess the city paper missed their 2 sold out music farm shows , their hit song on the radio, their new album, Radition, their spring jam and first flush festival appearances, oh and some small, meaningless, music festival called Bonnaroo....good job city paper!

Well, this is an interesting twist on the SLO drama this year! I can't wait to see how this one plays out!

What happened to the category for Rock Band of the Year? And where's HeyRocco? Otherwise, happy to see a lot of my favorite musicians on the ballot!

What's funny is that the ballots themselves are voted on, a fact which fans of SLO seem to not grasp at all.

You get nominated by actual human beings going to the ballots during the nominations and physically typing in the artist you want to be voted on later on. Then the nominations are announced after people send in their ballots...this should make a lot of sense, but SLO fans don't seem to get that yet. Many of these artists have done amazing things as well, look into them. There's more going on then a sold out show at the music farm.

i am very thankful for the oppurtunity my band (shipwrecked losers) had to play the music farm. We got lucky. just cause you play a sold out show at the music farm doesnt mean anything. there are so many bands not just in charleston but everywhere that will never get recognized the way my band and SLO has. So to everyone who did or didnt vote for my band as top punk band of 2013 i wanna say thank you. Really if it wasnt for the fans bands wouldnt even exist!!!!
