This year’s Boston Music Awards (a.k.a. the BMAs) will be presented on Sunday, December 5 at the Liberty Hotel, and is a fine excuse to host a bunch of cool bands. Performing will be the legendary Barry & The Remains, Lynn-based hip-hop artist M-Dot, 60’s girl group lovers Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents, synth-poppers from Worcester DOM, the Americana/folk band Kingsley Flood, and more (see full list below). Tickets can be purchased from for just the show, or VIP tickets which include a cocktail reception. Presented by Music Drives Us and TimeOut Boston. Proceeds will benefit the Music Drives Us foundation. And don’t forget to VOTE for your favorites. You can see the list of nominees and VOTE NOW at the BMA site. Voting closes at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 29th. Shameless plugs follow for a few of my faves…
