The O Music Awards are offbeat, outrageous and online, but we’re also very much another “O” word: Ongoing. In addition to keeping you up to date on music and tech news with this here blog, we’re also primed to launch a new aspect of the O Music Awards experience: O Music Awards Unboxed.
O Music Awards Unboxed is a New York-based event series that pulls together all aspects of the O Music Awards into one wild night: technology, music, audience interaction and our own special brand of WTF?! weirdness.
The O Music Awards — for those not in the know — is MTV’s brand new awards show dedicated to honoring achievements in music and technology. We’ve hosted two shows in the past year — with the third looming on the horizon. “Why dole out awards so often?” you may wonder. Well, because technology never slows down, and in accordance with that scene’s chimera-esque nature, neither do we. Our new Unboxed events series is just another way of keeping the celebration going year-round.
The first event will take place in New York City at The Studio at Webster Hall and will focus on the theme of interaction. We will be previewing Cameo, a new application from the Fast Society team primed to launch at SXSW, as well as going both old-school and synth with performances by classical instrument-wielding indie rockers Miracles of Modern Science and O Music Award nominee MNDR.
Unboxed isn’t an app launch, concert or installation — it’s a totally new brand of event.
