BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS 2006

Date: September 27, 2006
Venue: Avalon, Boston

At the end of the evening it was revealed that the bear who had been running around in the crowd was none other than Dresden Dolls drummer Brian Viglione, who doffed his costume’s head when his band was awarded the act of the year trophy. Dolls singer Amanda Palmer thanked fans, name- checked other bands, and triumphantly proclaimed “We love this (expletive) town!”
