And the award goes to...

In the fall of 1982, Metro Times presented the first-ever Detroit Music Awards, a reader-driven event celebrating the local music scenes. MT ran the DMAs for 10 years until the Motor City Music Foundation launched a rival awards show. In 1997, MT and the MCMF joined forces to produce a joint showcase, but in 2005 MT severed ties and launched its own event again, the Metro Times Music Awards. That didn't last, but the Detroit Music Awards is still going strong.
