Vote in that category and others. Thanks once again to the Plug Cartel for nominating BrooklynVegan in the “Music Blog of The Year” category. Let’s see if it’s possible to win two years in a row.

KALAI was about to question why M.I.A. wasn’t nominated for anything, but then I remembered that it’s probably because her album came out on Interscope. Major labels don’t count, and that’s also probably why we don’t see LCD Soundsystem or Kanye West on there either. Who else is missing?

The Plug Award event will take place in NYC on March 6th at Terminal 5. Stay tuned for more details. Last year it was at Irving Plaza. The year before that at Webster Hall.
