Kudos, too, to the CWMA finalists who couldn't have been more polite, nice and appreciative of their time on and off stage. By the time our marketing director handed me the final audience votes in a manila envelope I was convinced any of the three acts could emerge on top. Ultimately, The Naked Eyes earned the title of this year's CWMA winner. Congratulations to every one who made this one of the most pleasurable events of its kind in recent memory. Stay tuned for video clips (live footage and interviews) from the night.
You can catch The Naked Eyes tonight at Burt's Tiki Lounge for a benefit concert and again April 5 with Dead Meadow and Imaad Wasif!!! I'm super pumped about that show.
And don't forget to keep tabs on Bird Eater, performing a benefit for the Humane Society at Club Vegas March 27. Paul Jacobsen & Madison Arm will join headliners Megafaun at Kilby Court April 13.
