Assuming the Mayan's apocalyptic predictions are a little off, we'll all be around to catch the next round of OC Music Awards goodness next year, starting with their eight-week stint of annual live showcases to decide the winner of OC's best live band. Today, the OCMA's announced the lineups for each of the shows. The process for picking the bands came after month of submissions from bands all around the county–in the end, 35 were chosen.
The fun starts on Jan. 8 at Detroit Bar, where Fellow Bohemian, Alabaster Stones, Flying Sparks, Robert Jon & the Wreck and the Field Trip will perform on stage vie for your affections. All showcases are free and occur every Tuesday until the finale at the House of Blues Anaheim on Feb. 26. The venues range from ages and 18-and-over clubs to bars that are 21-and-over. See the full schedule after the jump.
Jan. 15: Annie McQueen, Becky Holt, Cherokee Fade, Alice Wallace and Justin Soileau perform at the District at Tustin Legacy.
