Best International Act - Fudge Awards 2017

Recommended Posts

DUST OFF YOUR BALLGOWN ...

We invite you to join us at Krakatoa on Saturday 11th March, to celebrate the twin joys of music and drinking. We'll be hosting the seventeenth annual instalment of our legendarily shambolic AWARDS CEREMONY - complete with tin-foil podium, and selection of fabulous trophies for the winners. Three bands will play live - this year, we present the bouncing musical gumbo of GYPSY ROOTS, the sweet prog sounds of the mesmeric SOLQUIN, and the up-tempo party vibes of THE SMOKIN BUGLER BAND.

Best processed through a lens of absinthe, although it's very tongue-in-cheek, we still encourage you to get dressed up in a suit / kilt / ballgown anyway. Makes the effort, you tramps. All winners, should they be in attendance, will be treated to a wee interview onstage by co-host and comedian VINCENT PRICE. Crowd participation in terms of cheering (and jeering) is mandatory. 

Facebook Event - https://www.facebook.com/events/148195125663805/

 

SO ...

Consider the following six nominees, and vote above. You may vote for more than one choice. You'll also be able to vote on Facebook, at some point soon, and also in person at Krakatoa - paper voting slips will be handed out at gigs. All these votes will be totalled and COMBINED to arrive at our one true champion.
