Voting is open and running for the fourth annual New London-centric Whalie Awards.
The awards are put on by WailingCity.com, a site dedicated to the esoteric, somewhat insular, but insanely vibrant music scene in New London.
Categories range across all genres, from Best Indie Pop to Best Roots Rock, Best Hip Hop, and Best Solo Singer / Songwriter. All the nominees are New London area acts.
New this year is write-in voting for Best DJ in the New London area. Voters can write in their nominees until May 10, after which the top vote getters become official nominees.
Further awards are chosen for the Whalies by a group of judges outside the New London area, including Album Of The Year categories, Best Song categories, and more.
It all culminates with an official red carpet and awards show at Hygenic Art Park on May 25.
