Although we want to spread the love to everyone, we’ve got a couple of rules:

  1. Musicians gotta be from Austin. We’ll use Travis County as the limits.
  2. Had to have done something in 2009. To be eligible, that means the musicians need to have either played a gig in Austin, or released an album or single (digitally does count).
  3. “2009″ means December 1st, 2008-December 1st, 2009.

Some other junk to know:

  • Only one nomination per Twitter name or Facebook Account, but you don’t have to submit for all categories in a single ballot.
  • If we think a ballot is fraudulent, we have the right to discard it.
  • BTW, we also check IP address-so don’t cheat.

And here’s the fine print:

Everyone is invited to nominate musicians for award consideration. For each award category, each person is invited to submit one musician for consideration per Twitter name or Facebook Account. Nominations across all 7 categories do not need to be submitted in a single ballot, but each confirmed submission will be counted as final per reader.

The Roaries Committee will select the top five nominated musicians per award category based on the quantity, quality and breadth of submissions received. Each finalist musician will be invited to attend the Award Ceremony.

Everyone is invited to vote for their favorite Roaries winners. One ballot per person will be counted in the final vote. The Roaries Committee reserves the right to discard any and all votes that it reasonably determines to be fraudulent or submitted by bots or other computer-generated voting applications. There are no fees to vote.

The final award winners will be determined based on the popular votes received through website voting and the Roaries Committee. The award winners will be announced live at the Awards Ceremony to be held at The Parish on February 25, 2010 in Austin.
