The 10th Annual OC Music Awards: Winners Galore!

When Brandon Ferguson publishes his review of the 10th Annual OC Music Awards held at the City National Grove of Anaheim held earlier tonight, he'll have more to talk about than the music. 

There was a Kanye West moment from the Wildboys, a not-so-special special guest, and a message from BLOK's mom. In the meantime, here are the winners:
