2009 Amanda Music Awards

Ladies & Gentlemen, it's that time of year. It's time for the Third Annual Amanda Music Awards! These are perhaps the most biased and frivolous fictional music awards on the Internet. That's just how I like it. Let's take a moment to honor all the musical merriment that went down in 2009. Please feel free to join in the fun and give out your own awards via the comment section.

Worst Opening Band of 2009-TORTOISE by far was the worst ever! Opened for Wilco at UIC. TERRIBLE.
