Every year the Asbury Park community, and beyond, comes together to honor and celebrate the excellent work being done every day by musicians, poets, journalists, and radio stations in advancement of the local scene. The 2012 iteration of the AMA’s has dropped its official nominee and awards ballot with Speak Into My Good Eye in the running for two awards with three nominees. With the release of the awards ballot, we’re now primed for the fantastic showcase of talent set to be staged at the gala event on Thursday, November 8th at The Stone Pony. For the full list of nominees click here, and be sure to pick up a ticket to the all-star studded show at Ticketweb ($5 cheaper when you buy in advance). Congratulations to all the nominees and everyone involved in making the Asbury Park scene what it is.
