Well, folks, it's finally here. After navigating the sonic marathon that is the OCMAs, we are near the light at the end of the tunnel: the two-night award-show finals event. The top five artists were picked from both the Best Live Band and Best Live Acoustic Act categories and placed in the finals, where they will compete for top honors in their respective group.
On Thursday, Feb. 24, Canvas, Parker Macy Blues, Micah Brown, Stacy Clark and fan winner Danny Maika will be competing for Best Live Acoustic Act at the Fullerton Museum starting at 7:30 p.m.
On Friday, Feb. 25, Railroad to Alaska, Kiev, the Steelwells, Blok and fan winner We Are the Arsenal will be competing for Best Live Band at the Galaxy Concert Theatre, also starting at 7:30 p.m.
At the end of each showcase night, the winners will be announced onstage. You can also check out the annual Listening Wall at the Fullerton Museum on Feb. 24. The reception begins at 6 p.m. Come out to support your local musicians. It will be a night to remember.
