Weekly Poll
Should Cal Poly allow Milo Yiannopoulos to speak on campus?

No. His hate-filled rhetoric has no place at Cal Poly.
While I disagree with his views, students should be able to hear him out and decide for themselves.
Yes. Upholding free speech vital to democracy. We shouldn't censor anyone.
Who the hell is Milo Yiannopoulos?

New Times / New Times Music Awards

 

The New Times Music Awards return!

Songwriters, musicians, performers, and bands, it’s once again your time to shine. The eighth annual New Times Music Awards will begin accepting entries on Thursday, July 28–Monday, August 22 at 5pm in five musical genre categories (including an “open” division), a songwriting category, and an album of the year competition. The genre winners must be available to perform during the Friday, November 11, 2016 live judging competition at the Fremont Theatre. Here’s the scoop.

Starting this year, you can enter up to ten original songs in each of the following genre categories: Country/Americana/Folk, R&B/Blues, Rock/Alternative, Hip-Hop/Reggae/World, and Open.

You may also enter up to three original songs in the songwriting competition (lyrics must be included). And you may enter one album released between July 7, 2015 to August 22, 2016, for the album of the year category. Each song or album entry costs $10. Entry deadline is Monday, August 22, no later than 5 p.m. You’ve got one month, people! Enter online by following the link.

A Readers Choice Award will be voted on September 29 through October 13.

Winners in the five genre categories will play a live-judged show at the Fremont Theatre on Friday, November 11, with one act crowned for Best Live Performance. Winners of the songwriting and best album categories, as well as runners-up in the genre categories and Readers Choice, will receive their awards that same evening. Tickets will be available at a future TBA date at the New Times (1010 Marsh Street, SLO), Sun (2540 Skyway Dr. Ste. A, Santa Maria), Boo Boo Records (978 Monterey St. SLO) or at TicketFly.com
