Boston Music Awards 2010

Date: December 5, 2010
Venue: The Liberty Hotel, Boston

The question, after Amanda Palmer took Artist of the Year honors at the 2010 Boston Music Awards at the Liberty Hotel last night, was not whether this was her year. Rather, the question was: When is it not a banner year for Palmer?
