Your Vote Is Worth $25,000

Posted by bigincanada on June 19, 2009

No, we are not running for any government offices, and we are not trying to buy your vote. Although….

On September 22, 2009, the Verge Music Awards will return for their 2nd year on XM Canada (The Verge – XM 87), live-to-air from The Mod Club in Toronto. The winners will be chosen by you, the public, and voting will run from July 1st until August 31st. $25,000 will be awarded to the winners of both “Album of the Year” and “Artist of the Year.” Last year’s winners were none other than The Weakerthans (“Artist of the Year”) and Hey Rosetta! (“Album of the Year”), and the VMAs featured performances by The Stills, Broken Social Scene, and Sebastien Grainger. This year’s performers have not yet been announced, but it will be interesting to see how The Verge plans to top last year.

For more info, check out, or tune in to The Verge on XM 87. And don’t forget that it is your civic duty to vote.
