CWMA will host 10 local-music showcases that will take place during the first two weeks of February. These will feature 25 bands of all genres, and (new this year) two DJ Spin-Off events featuring 10 of Utah’s best DJs—rather than the one showcase with five DJs we had last year.
We gave music lovers and folks who love to get dizzy spinning to DJs the opportunity to vote for their favorite DJ, from December 7-28. Now, we’ve tallied the votes and confirmed with the DJs, and here are the top 10 vote-getters:
DJ Supa Mario
Flash & Flare
DJ Elvis Freshly
DJ Handsome Hands
They will then compete in the two DJ Spin-Off events, on Feb. 1 and 8. The top vote-getter from both nights will be crowned the King/Queen of the ones and twos, who will be announced in the Feb. 16 issue.
The final list of 25 bands for the 2012 City Weekly Music Awards will be announced soon. The list is looking mighty fine and is an excellent example of the diverse talent in Salt Lake City, both veteran acts and some new ones.
