"Better Than Puppies: 2004 Music Awards"
June 23, 2004

by Chris Hassiotis

When itís as hot and humid out as it was on the night of Thursday, June 17, thereís absolutely no reason to get all pretty to go out on the town. Absolutely no reason, that is, except for the Flagpole Athens Music Awards, the annual event that signifies the official beginning to AthFestís weekend-long musical bonanza.

In its sixth year, the show provides audiences a chance to check out several local bands, and for the first year featured the Athens Film Foundationís screening of and awards for local music videos. The music awards are chosen entirely by Flagpole readers in a month-long poll leading up to the show, with the top three vote recipients listed as finalists.


Lionz took the Jam/Improv win; the band, which won the 2003 award for Cover Band, has made inroads into the local jam scene this past year. Members of the group delivered a forceful speech speaking to their love for the local scene, and the benefit of being able to perform so frequently with local acts.
