My Favourite Tragedy also walked away from the LiVE 88.5 Big Money Shot Finals with $75,000. They’ve made big strides since I saw them in the competition last year. They were one of my picks at the start of the night to walk away with a financial boost to their musical journey, and the judges agreed.
The big winner at LiVE 88.5‘s Big Money Shot this year was Autumns Canon. They walk away with $150,000 in talent and development support. I enjoyed their performance more this time around as I was now familiar with some of their music. When I last shot them at the Round 2 Finals, I had not heard them before.
Congratulations to Autumns Canon, this years winner of the LiVE 88.5 Big Money Shot contest and $150,000 in talent and development support. Also winning $75,000 each were The Balconies and My Favourite Tragedy. The finals are one of the biggest nights of the year for Ottawa’s local music scene. As always, it was an entertaining night of music.
Check back for photographs from the performances of all 5 bands this coming week.
LiVE 88.5 changed the format of the Big Money Shot this year. It has gone from 3 rounds down to 2. The finals are now made up of 2 winners from each round final, as well as 1 wildcard entry voted in by fans. Congratulations are due to Autumns Canon, the second band to advance to the 2010 Finals from Round 2. They also had an energetic set and are deserving of their spot in the final. This years final is shaping up to be a strong night of music on the Ottawa scene.
