Austin Music Awards 2017

AMA Logo 12032017-01Every year for the last 35 years, Austin Chronicle has hosted the Austin Music Awards, celebrating the best local music and musicians. But what might sound like a “local” award show to those not knowing the Austin music scene, is a fierce competition to win among some of the best musicians and artists in the USA. This year the award show was held at the ACL Moody Theatre, the home of the weekly TV show Austin City Limits.

This year’s show honoured The SIMS Foundation, that helps musicians fight addiction. It also honoured Terry Allen with himself, the house band and friends playing his songs. The show is split between the winners in the different categories, and musical performances. The house band was led by Charlie Sexton, and here are my best photos from the show.
