More truth of the Cammy Awards…

You wouldn’t believe how much it costs to put together an event like the Cammy Awards (http://www.thecammys.net/) at a venue called, The Linda in Albany. I just contacted the Linda in Albany via e-mail out of curiosity of their rental pricing of the venue. The fact is that anybody can have a show or an event at The Linda as long as you can pay their hourly rates. The owners doesn’t really go by the number of people attending the gig or how good/bad the show is. Anybody can rent The Linda as long you have that kind of money. Wanna know how much it costs hourly to rent the place?

I got a response from the venue back and they said it costs somewhere between $500 – $1000. As I predicted before… it’s not cheap. So to do the math, since the show starts at 5:00 p.m., it’ll probably go on ’til like late in the evening like 9 or 10 or later. So in all, the show is gonna cost them like several thousand dollars or more.

I really don’t think this Tier One Talent guy is paying for this all by himself. He’s definitely having some help with the budgeting of this show. I’m sure the show costs a lot more than the hourly rates. I’m sure they’ll have to pay to decorate the place, pay the bands and all that stuff.

The reason they want to have this event at The Linda is ’cause The Linda is like a theatre, I think. They clearly want this show to be like a mini-version of The Grammy’s like you see on TV.

In my opinion, they are wasting tons of money on a show that no one cares about.

According to the website, they say the nominations are supposed to be revealed on Dec. 15th which is next Monday. If your band or venue gets nominated… congratulations but don’t get so excited about it… I warn ya. Instead of the talented bands that matter around here winning the awards, they won’t win awards but instead Tier One’s Talent and his gang of friends will be winning awards. It’s gonna be the same bullshit like last year. They’re just a bunch of egomaniacs and attention whores trying to get recognized for what they do. They’re just a bunch of losers putting together their own award show so they can win themselves awards and show the Capital District how special and cool they are. I repeat, egomaniacs and people with delusions of grandeur. They are a bunch of people who are legends in their own minds.

When last year’s award show happened, I can’t tell you how many times I warned certain bands & musicians who were nominated and warned them not to trust this show but sure enough, they didn’t listen to me. They didn’t win the awards and they ended up getting disappointed. Same bullshit will happen this year.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Tier One Talent guy shitty Alice In Chains tribute band, Sludge Factory is gonna get a few nominations, that’s probably why this guy stepped down from being in charge of promoting this show on the facebook page.

Don’t be naive, Capital District. Don’t support these people behind this bullshit event. I can’t wait to see the nominations next week. It’s gonna be a good laugh!!!

  1. I’m sure they booked a room for a certain amount of time, which required a small deposit – the deposit probably was not an issue, especially since the event seems to have a few sponsors. I’m sure they expected to make up the remainder of the cost from ticket sales, which obviously isn’t going to happen. Look for the event to be canceled or moved to a different location soon.

      That’s what I thought… with them having serious delusions of grandeur they thought they would make a lot of money of a “sellout” show so they would cover the costs of the rental that way. Plus, I’m sure they payed a lot of money for the trophies. Yeah, they do give away real trophies from some shitty catalog online which would probably cost them a couple of more thousand. That’s an even more waste of money since they’ll be giving the awards to themselves.

      I don’t think the show is gonna get canceled or moved. Trust me, they’re desperate. They’ll do whatever it takes to get people interested. Wait until the nominations come out this coming Monday, I have a feeling this area is gonna be all over it and start kissing their asses.

      1. I understand that these guys wanna get recognized for their music and for supporting the scene but starting an award show so they can win themselves awards is not the way to do it. That’s not doing something “positive” for the scene at all. It’s actually disrespecting the talent around here and disrespecting the local community. It makes them look desperate and egotistical.

        All this is doing is them saying, “Hey look at me, I’m talented… now respect me”.

        These guys think they are rock stars and celebrities or something. Watch for it, they’re gonna be playing dress up at this award show… wearing tuxedos and the ladies will probably dress up in expensive dresses trying to look beautiful. Their own little version of the Grammy’s/MTV Awards/etc.

        I’d go to this show myself just to laugh at how ridiculous and dumb they all look but watching a bunch of people jerking themselves off and kissing each others asses is not my idea of a good time.

        I would rather spend my money on better things.
