Infectious Magazine Takes On The Boston Music Awards

Facebooktwittertumblrby feather

Every year the Boston Music Awards team up with some of the finest in the city, from the swanky Liberty Hotel to the incredible Music Drives Us, as they bring us a night filled with local music, drinks, dancing and yes, even a little awards ceremony as well.

This year marked the 25th anniversary, and while guests arrived in style, taking photos in front of the step and repeat, there was no doubt that what the evening held was pure elegance, with a twist of rock and roll. When you can get all dressed up, bask in the beauty of a fancy hotel, and listen to the area’s best local music, all while knowing proceeds go towards helping continue funding music education, via Music Drives Us, you know you’re in for a good night.

Between the evening’s performances, artists mingled with the crowd, and by 9:00pm we were all attempting to sneak a peak at the projector screen on the hotel’s fifth floor, listening for the evening’s winners. For those that were unable to make this fabulous event, check out the full list of winners below.
