This week saw the Scottish Alternative Music Awards take place in the Glasgow Garage. Running for the 3rd year it has become progressively bigger and better and looks set to become a firm fixture within the Scottish music calander.
The winners in no particual order were:
Best Live Act: We Were Promised Jetpacks
Best Newcomer: Bwani Junction
Best Rock/Alternative: Fatherson
Best Acoustic: Brown Bear & The Bandits
Best Metal: Ten Tonne Dozer
Best Electronic: Fridge Magnets

With the purpose of highlighting emerging artists to new audiences the multi genre awards ceremony and performances worked really well. A packed out house of happy people can’t be a bad thing for all those involved.
