Beacon reporter to co-host Limelight Magazine Music Awards Saturday
Limelight Magazine, an online New England publication, has featured some of the best bands in the area during the past year. Now, fans have the opportunity to see some of them perform and be rewarded for their accomplishments, as Firehouse 13, located at 41 Central Street in Providence, will host the fourth annual Limelight Magazine Music Awards ceremony on Saturday from 7 to 11:30 p.m.
The live music event will honor bands and musicians from New England that were selected by readers of the magazine in an online poll. Co-hosting the event will be Limelight Magazine Co-Owner Katie Botelho and Managing Editor Jessica Botelho, who is also a reporter at the Warwick Beacon.
Rhode Island PBS will be covering the show and air it as a 10-minute segment on the weekly TV show "Teenage Critic." While the airdate is yet to be determined, they will be interviewing some of the nominees and filming portions of the event.
Among the performers are Steve Allain, Awesome Express, Beautiful Tuesday, Andrea Belanger, By All Means, Ray Cooke, Lisa Couto, Fall and Bounce, Jillian Jensen and the Jessica Prouty Band.
Tickets for the awards show are $10 each, $12 the day of the show, and can be purchased through BrownPaperTickets.com.
