    2016 Boston Music Awards Nomination

    Hello. Johnny Anguish here. I haven’t had much to say lately. That’s just the way things are right now. In the middle of not saying much, a strange thing happened. Some folks out there still thought of me when it came time for this year’s Boston Music Awards nominations and my name ended up on the ballot for Best Live Music Photographer. That was certainly a pleasant surprise. Thank you, nominating-type people.

    If you’d like to cast a ballot for this year’s awards, you can do so over at the Boston Music Awards site. You can buy tickets for the December 8th awards show at the House of Blues, too. If that’s your thing. I’ll stop talking now. Here’s a photo…
