Brace yourselves, music fans: this Thursday, Charleston's favorite bands will converge on the Pour House for a showcase and awards ceremony as we unveil the winners of this year's City Paper Music Awards. This mega-music lovefest will not only feature performances by six awesome CPMA winners, but we're also throwing you a chance to win some high-end adult toys from Guilty Pleasures and a guitar from Shem Creek Music. Hey, maybe you'll even win both. The lucky winners will all receive individualized, one-of-a-kind awards created by street artist Patch Whisky. You probably know him for his flying rainbow monsters. The event is free, but we'll gladly accept donations for musician Nick Collins's medical fund.
The 2nd Annual CPMAs will feature performances by:
The 33's (Punk Band of the Year)
The Local Honeys (Up and Coming Artist of the Year)
The Flat Foot Floozies (Jazz Band of the Year)
Dirty Dave Da Fly Guy (Hip-Hop Artist of the Year)
Sarah Cole and the Hawkes (Blues Band of the Year)
Wallace Mullinax (Guitarist of the Year) and members of the Dead 27s
