One last BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS edition of Accents before the party arrives Sunday night at the Liberty Hotel, and for this one we welcoming Chris Keene of MEAN CREEK to hang out, talk shop, and discuss Friends. The Creek is up for three BMAs -- Artist of the Year, Album/EP Of the Year, Video of the Year -- and celebrate a post-tour homecoming gig at Great Scott tomorrow night. They'll also be performing Sunday night at Redstar Union in Cambridge for a special BMA simulcast event that's free with RSVP to redstarunion.com. Nominees Gem Club and Yale Massachusetts are also on the bill, and there will be a shuttle service going back and forth from Kendall Square to the Liberty. The performances will be broadcast on the internet and on a giant screens at the BMAs. Very cool.
And of course, come find WFNX at the Liberty, then come hang with us in the hotel room for our own private party. We'll be doing interviews in the tub. Bring your skin.
