Some information for you:
• Mark your calendars for the Tucson Area Music Awards concert and awards show on Wednesday, Sept. 5, at the Rialto Theatre.
In recent years, we've published our special TAMMIES section—featuring the TAMMIES results, stories on the big winners, and a recap of the year in local music—in the issue that officially comes out the day after the Wednesday awards show.
However, for a couple of years now, a good chunk of our distribution has been done on Wednesday—meaning that tens of thousands of papers with the TAMMIES results were in readers' hands before the awards show. In other words, there's been zero in the way of suspense at the awards show.
Therefore, this year, we're doing things a little differently: Our special TAMMIES section will be part of the Sept. 13 issue.
By publishing the section a week after the awards show, the winners will remain a mystery at the Sept. 5 event—and we'll be able to include photos and tidbits from the show in the special section, too.
Meanwhile, the final round of TAMMIES voting continues through Wednesday, Aug. 1. If you're knowledgeable about the local music scene, and you have not yet voted, please do so!
• In other news: The information-submission deadline for our Fall Arts Preview, hitting streets officially on Aug. 16, is rapidly approaching.
If you are involved in an arts organization and/or are putting on any sort of event between mid-August and the end of the year, please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than noon on Monday, July 30.
It's free publicity. Get us your information!
