Pittsburgh Rock Music Awards results

Posted By on Tue, Jan 17, 2012 at 9:56 AM

Morning!

Just wanted to update you all on the second annual Pittsburgh Rock Music Awards that took place Sunday night. As you may have heard about before — in the Local Beat space last year around this time, or in Critics' Picks last week — Backallie Music again put together the awards show, which was juried based on posts and likes on Backallie's Facebook page. Scientific? Absolutely not. But then, remember last week when it was revealed that of the five NHL players headed to the all-star game via fan vote were Ottawa Senators? For that matter, do you remember CP's reader's poll every year? Point is, nothing's all that scientific.

Without further ado, a list of the categories and winners from Sunday, courtesy of Backallie's Allie Nickel. (Sad to report that my favorite category, "Best 'Oh Shit' Moment," apparently didn't get enough nominations to go forward.)
