You Should Go to the Tammies Tomorrow

Posted By on Tue, Aug 30, 2011 at 2:20 PM

Music editor Steve Seigel and senior writer Jim Nintzel were on Arizona Illustrated yesterday to discuss tomorrow night's Tammies event at the Rialto Theatre. Learn the process behind finding the winners, feel like you learned something about some of the nominees, share in the memories of past memories, etc. Steve wears a Big Star shirt under his blazer, so the video is totally worth six minutes of your time.

[Also, they discuss the HoCo Festival, three nights of music which are also highly recommended, but which is not the subject of this post. More on HoCo in this week's issue, available on newsstands and online Thursday.]

So, you're going to the Tammies, right? There are a number of excellent reasons you should attend:

1. It's free.
2. The lineup is actually one of those rare occasions when there's something for everyone. You can see quite excellent music performances from...Gabriel Sullivan and Taraf de Tucson, Seashell Radio, The Tryst, Greg Morton, and Hollywood Knights, and 2011 TAMMIES Tucson Music Hall of Fame inductee, Neon Prophet.
3. Not only is the event free, there's free food from BrushFire BBQ, Don Pedro's, and Eegee's starting at 6:30.
4. You can always record the Challenge: Rivals reunion special on MTV. That's what DVRs are for.

I'll be there, and I don't even like going out and being around people all that much. Look for the guy with the video camera. See you tomorrow night!
