2010 San Diego Music Award Winners

It doesn't look like the San Diego Music Awards have been listed on the official site quite yet, so since I failed to live-tweet last night, I've compiled the winners today. Some shockers, some not so shocking, but it was such a fun night all around. There are always things that can be improved and hopefully as the music community grows, so will the academy to make sure people get nominated in the right categories. I suspect my personal education of the Electronic and DJ scenes will grow this week at the SDMTC and it's good to know that more hip-hop players will be involved in the future. I was a slacker blogger and hardly took any photos, but you can see a nice gallery over on
