It’s time once again for the City Paper’s annual Music Issue, and once again we’ll feature your favorite musicians in the City Paper Music Awards.

We’ve been sorting through the number of nominations, which came in at a record pace this year, and we’ve got a stocked slate of great Holy City musicians to choose from across 21 categories.

You can cast your votes for your favorites from Drummer of the Year to Up-and-Coming Artist of the year from September 23 until October 11. Thanks for supporting local music!
