Last weekend, I offered a recap of the Grammy Awards, supposedly TV’s biggest night of music. Yet another award ceremony took place that weekend — but not on TV, mind you — the PLUG Independent Music Awards.
PLUG is very different from other award ceremonies. Referring to those events, PLUG says, “Very rarely do these honors reach, let alone embrace, independent music… We’re a community that thinks for ourselves. We don’t take our cues from mainstream media or marketing.”
