PDP Nominated for BEST HIPHOP ACT in Providence Phoenix!
This may come as a rush of deja vu to some of you, but its just that time again.
The nominees for the Providence Phoenix 2008 Best Music Poll have been announced, and POORLY DRAWN PEOPLE has been nominated for BEST HIP HOP ACT in Rhode Island.
You may recall that last year both Poorly Drawn's Storm Davis and former PDP member Symmetry were nominated as solo artists, and math being what it is, PDP nation was split in 2, as were the votes, and the trophy went to another act.
However, SD did win the 2007 Best Album award for Kegstand Poetry, and that shows what happens when we all rally behind the same cause.
That victory led to coverage and opportunity for PDP that wouldn't have come along otherwise, and we're grateful beyond words to all of you that helped make that happen.
This year the Phoenix saw fit to nominate Poorly Drawn People as a unit, so we'll have the strength of the fans, friends, family, and stalkers from all 5 of our camps.
So this is our plea to you: a second chance in an election year to cast a vote that counts. We can't promise to cut your taxes or make the streets safer, but we promise to flirt with your girlfriend, drink up your whiskey, and if your vote leads to publicity that gets just one more fan in our corner, maybe Storm Davis will leave you alone for 5 minutes and ramble endlessly in pseudo-inspirational but slightly psychotic prose to them instead of you.
Now that's a cause America can get behind.
Here's how you vote:
Go to: http://thephoenix.com/BMP/Providence/
You can either begin your ballot with the first category, or go directly to Best Hip Hop.
Select "Poorly Drawn People" from the list of nominees.
When you've finished your vote, click 'Cast Your Ballot'
Scroll down and enter your name and email address.
THE BALLOT WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE ONLINE UNTIL THURSDAY APRIL 3, SO VOTE EARLY (AND OFTEN, MULTIPLE EMAIL ADDRESS HOLDERS!)
Again, any support you can give is truly appreciated. Vote, forward this to friends who can spare 5 minutes and are willing to take a listen, post in their blog, and spread the word. The only reason we've been able to achieve what we have in the past 3 years is because of you, and this will be no different.
Thanks for listening,
SD | PDP
