Portland Phoenix Best Music Poll Awards Show

Alicia, Johnny, and I were honored to be invited as guest presenters for the Portland Phoenix's Best Music Poll Awards Show at the Asylum on Wednesday, June 3rd.

Introduced as the creative force behind Tower of Song, we got to announce the nominees for Best Pop-Rock Act. We were also ecstatic to announce personal faves, Dominic & The Lucid, as the winner of the category. Dominic has been a great friend to Tower of Song, playing our December '08 show- a performance that significantly raised the profile of our little live music experiment. He also performed at our first Tower of Song fundraiser at Slainte. We love Dominic & the Lucid's Season of the Sun album from last year and look forward to future releases. They are truly deserving of their win.

Listen to Dominic & The Lucid here.

We would also like to extend particular congratulations to Computer at Sea for Best Electronic Act and Fire on Fire for Best Indie Act. We didn't agree with all the results, but we would like to thank the Phoenix for putting on a fun show that did a great job of bringing the music community together.

After the show, we also skipped on down to SPACE and saw an absolutely amazing (but way too short) set by Dilly Dilly. After blowing our minds with her mastery of ukulele, banjo, guitar, loop pedals, voice, and awesomeness, Dilly Dilly announced that she will be releasing her new album ...of art and intention on June 21st for free online. Be sure to check it out- it is awesome!
