Music in the Air

The Round One votes from our readers and our panel of critics have all been tallied, and it's official: We have our 2012 slate of Tucson Area Music Awards (aka TAMMIES) finalists!

However, we're keeping the figurative cat in the bag until next week, when we'll announce the finalists and launch the final round of voting.

Of course, this is all part of the process leading up to the announcement of the winners at our annual TAMMIES show and ceremony, which is tentatively scheduled for early September.

Thanks to all who voted in Round One ... and thanks in advance for voting in the final round!

• In related news: Around TAMMIES-show time, we're planning on launching a music blog at TucsonWeekly.com. Yes, that's right: After six-plus years of blogging, we're finally giving The Range, our online daily dispatch, a sister music blog. (Or a brother music blog, perhaps. The gender of the thing has yet to be determined.)

Anyway, we're trying to come up with a name for the blog. If you have any ideas—of course, we're looking for a name that's music-related, and tied to Tucson somehow—email me at jboegle@tucsonweekly.com. If we wind up using your name, we'll give you recognition, and maybe even a valuable prize, presuming we can find something valuable yet expendable sitting around the office somewhere.

So ... get thinkin'!

• In other news, but still speaking of music: I have been getting an increasing number of questions about the date of our Club Crawl® in the fall. Well, mark your calendars for Saturday, Oct. 6!
