Although they didn’t grab any mantle accessories at this year’s Cincinnati Entertainment Awards ceremony, the audience reaction when Skeetones were announced for their nominations in the New Artist and Electronic categories is evidence that the band might consider drafting acceptance speeches for 2011. The band has been generating big buzz since its official debut just over a year ago. The irony of the Best New Artist nomination is that the members have played together in various projects for a while.
“It’s nice that we’re nominated for Best New Artist, and we’ve been playing together for like eight years,” drummer Robby Brokamp says. “We came out of nowhere.”
Skeetones perform New Year's Eve with Papadosio and The Werks; the show starts at 8 p.m. Admission is $20. Get Madison Theater details here.
