Vote For AFP In The Phoenix/WFNX Best Music Poll
« on: May 09, 2011, 08:29:01 PM »

It's the final days of voting for the annual Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll and you can help AFP take home the...er...gold?

You can find ALL of the categories and nominees at http://bit.ly/PhoenixVote
Or, you can jump directly "Best Female Vocalist (Boston)" (where Amanda's nominated) at http://bit.ly/VoteAFP11

Please take a second to vote for Amanda, or take a few minutes and explore all of the other categories and nominees (and maybe discover some good new music), cast your votes (by selecting the checkboxes next to artist's names), and don't forget, you need to click the buttons for "SUBMIT VOTE" on each category, and "CAST YOUR BALLOT" for your votes to count.

Also please feel free to tell your friends to do the same on Twitter, Facebook, etc.
We can't legally bribe you for votes - and we wouldn't, anyway - but we will love you forever if you can help.  O0


P.S. You might see some familiar names i.e. Bodega Girls (who remixed "Map of Tasmania") in the "Live Act (Boston)" category, and Hooray For Earth (who opened for The Dolls in November) in the "Best Asshole Who Moved to New York" category...show 'em some love!

There was an initial push a while ago. Haven't posted today. Lots of other stuff going on.

The tricky thing is that there are a few steps to casting your ballot.

It's so easy to vote, hit submit and then think your vote is casted, meanwhile there's two more steps to actually submit it through!

yes, you submit your vote on each page,
and when you're done,
you have to click
'cast your ballot'
and fill in name and email address,
and when you submit that,
you're done!

btw, today may be the last day to vote.

Wouldn't voting for her send a message of tacit suport for her unlawful behaviour?   ;D

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

Winning this might also be the thing that gets her back on the straight and narrow.  ; - }

BTW, last day to vote ! ! !

You all voted her
2011 Boston Female Vocalist!

YEAH ! ! !
from
http://thephoenix.com/BMP/Boston/2011/FemaleVocalist/

BEST MUSIC POLL > BOSTON
Best Female Vocalist in Boston
Amanda Palmer

Amanda Palmer's covered a lot of ground since her days in collective street theater at Wesleyan and busking as "The Eight Foot Bride" in Harvard Square. Hell, she's covered even more ground since she last won the Best Female Vocalist BMP award in 2005 — the year that her cabaret punk duo the Dresden Dolls also won for Best Local Act and Best Local Album. This year, she released her second solo full-length studio album, Amanda Palmer Goes Down Under. She has also recently started a side project pretending to be conjoined twins, and self-released an album of ukulele-based Radiohead covers. In April, she collaborated with Ben Folds, (husband) Neil Gaiman, and Damian Kulash on 8in8 at Berklee's Rethink Music conference, recording eight songs in eight hours. The laundry list goes on. If any musician is nationally recognized as a face of Boston music over the past five years, it's likely — and deservedly — Amanda Palmer.

RUNNERS-UP:
2. Jenny Dee (Jenny Dee & the Deelinquents)
3. Leesa Coyne (Naked on Roller Skates)
4. Aly Spaltro (Lady Lamb the Beekeeper)
