Cleveland, Ohio- The Alternative Press Music Awards is a once in a life opportunity for both the artists and the fans and both parties make the most of this event. The event is for fans of all ages, the young and the young at heart .I had the opportunity to work the red carpet again this year but this time I wanted it to be different .Instead of the same red carpet photos how about some images of the fans reaction and the artists reaction to meeting one another .
I met and spoke at length with fans from Connecticut and Michigan who with a bit of irony were both named Meaghan and one Cassie thrown in the mix as well for good measure .
I saw lots of smiles and hugs and even some tears of joy so I think allowing the fans access to the res carpet is a wonderful idea . The current state of the world is full of negativity but the release and pleasure we get from music is almost priceless so to make a shining moment is someones life will always be a good thing .
I spoke with Cassie Marie from Griswald CT who stated her favorite part of the AMPA’s was the drum off and her favorite bands were Dance Gavin Dance and Too Close To Touch .
This was just a precursor to more extensive coverage of the Alternative Press Music Awards with more come on the next weeks . Let us know your favorite moments in the comment section below.
