Viva La VIMA!

The very first Voize Independent Music Awards (VIMA) was a celebration in honour of our local indie-music scene’s finest. in true indie fashion, the informal event held at Titanium Club in PJ last Saturday treated the 500+ audience to performances by local groundbreaking acts.

The award show also had some surprising categories including Best Genre Bender, Best Song To Play At Camp Fire and To Do Away With Monday Morning Blues and Best Pub Act.

A big thank you to Voize for giving credit where it’s due. May the VIMAs continue to highlight the best of local music for years and generations to come!
