This week, on Wednesday, Aug. 13, at the Rialto Theatre, the Weekly will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Tucson Area Music Awards, our annual celebration of the best local music that Tucson has to offer, as voted by you, our music-lovin’ readers.
In addition to the awards announcements, the TAMMIES will, as is the tradition, also feature a pretty awesome lineup of live performances: Golden Boots, Tom Walbank (pictured), Sand Rubies, Michael P. Nordberg, Jo Wilkinson and the Crystal Ridge Bluegrass Band will all perform brief sets. And, continuing a tradition begun last year, the event will also include Taste of the TAMMIES—a fancy name for “get there early, and enjoy free food from Enoteca, BrushFire BBQ Co., eegee’s, Marco’s Patisserie and Javalina’s.” Killer brisket and delicious frozen lemonade mere steps away from each other? For free? You kiddin’ me? I’d be there early even if my bosses didn’t insist on it.
It all goes down at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30) on Wednesday, Aug. 13. The Rialto is located at 318 E. Congress St. Admission is completely free and open to all ages. For more info, head to TAMMIES.com (head there anyway, for that matter), or call 740-1000. See you there!
