BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS 2004

Date: September 29, 2004
Venue: Avalon, Boston

This production was a sharp departure from past years as it was much more of an industry-oriented affair and a true celebration of the diversity and spirit of the city’s music scene. The big winners turned out to be all of those who make Boston one of the most vital musical cities in the country.
