Independent Music Awards

Posted By on Thu, Mar 13, 2008 at 12:00 PM

The 8th annual Independent Music Awards were handed out March 8 in Toronto at Canadian Music WeekJenn Grant won the Galaxie Rising Stars Award from the CBC for her lovely Orchestra for the Moon and Classified won Favourite Urban Artist or Group of the Year. That’s exciting and I certainly don’t mean to play down the validity of this award, in any way, but do you want to know who else was up for a Galaxie Rising Stars award this year? Grant’s summer tour pals, The Weakerthans! Seriously? Maybe I don’t fully understand the definition of “rising star,” but The Weakerthans are risen. They’ve been around for more than 10 years!
