Each year, the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards celebrates the local music that has been made over the course of the previous 12 months. And each year just prior to the awards, the BRINK showcase puts the spotlight on the "next wave," new artists who look like they'll make a big impact on the next 12 months. This year's BRINK party goes down Nov. 15 at the Southgate House.
I've been receiving a lot of questions about the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards so I thought I'd take a minute to clear a few things up.
The big question: Can people vote more than once? While the voting program online allows you to vote as much as you want, your first vote is the only one that will be counted. So, no, you can vote just once. (I'm imagining some musician who has spent the past week night and day stuffing the ballot box, reading this and throwing his or her computer across the room.)
The other question has a less direct answer: Why wasn't I nominated? Every year there are many deserved artists who get passed over by the CEAs. It's not meant to be an insult. There are just only so many slots available.
