Some news and notes this week:
• I get a steady stream of emails with questions regarding the Best of Tucson®. Here are answers to some of the most-common questions: Voting starts online with the April 5 issue, and will end on May 30. There is no nomination process; our readers say who/what they think is the best in each category, and we tally up the results. We take the summer to count all of the ballots and put together the issue, which will hit the streets on Sept. 27.
Any other questions? Send 'em to me by clicking my name above.
• Mark your calendars: Spring Club Crawl® will hit downtown and Fourth Avenue on Saturday, April 21. All-access wristbands, for the price of $8, are on sale now at Zia Records—which, as always, is a fantastic deal, given the number of venues/stages (around 25) and bands (80 or so, if not more) included.
• Speaking of Club Crawl®: As is the tradition around these parts, we officially kick off Round 1 of readers' choice voting for the Tucson Area Music Awards (aka TAMMIES) with the Spring Club Crawl®. So, now is the time to ask for feedback: Are there any TAMMIES categories we should add, delete, tweak or otherwise alter?
You can look at a list of categories and past winners (going back to the start of the TAMMIES, way back in 1993) on the Music page at TucsonWeekly.com. If you have any feedback or suggestions, again, send them to me at the email address below.
