I saw this on Drew Masters’ M.E.A.T. group on Facebook and thought it to be a great opportunity for Canadian metal bands.
Metal Queen Management is sponsoring MQM is also sponsoring this year’s “Best Metal Band” category at the TORONTO INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARDS (TIMAs). The TIMAs — now in their 4th year — have gained tremendous momentum while remaining true to the goal of creating a new positive community space for independent artists. In 2007, TIMA gave away $30,000 in prizes; this year prizes total over $40,000. The TIMAs have three components: a seminar, music showcases during the summer, and an award show held at The Phoenix Concert Theatre on July 31, 2008.
