Inaugural AP Music Awards
Rock + Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
For nearly 30 years, Alternative Press (AP) has been the go-to destination as the definitive source for news of the underground music scene.
"I look forward to celebrating several generations' worth of artists from the ever-growing AP community, from Joan Jett & The Blackhearts to Fall Out Boy to the current Warped Tour headliners. This is not only going to be an amazing night for Alternative Press, but for the true fans, the musicians, the labels and the industry at large. Be prepared for many surprises, once-in-a-lifetime moments sure to be trending worldwide!" commented AP publisher Mike Shea.
Vincent Lighting Systems was hired to provide lighting for this inaugural concert. Lighting Designer Chris Shick and Co-Designer Ben Starett chose a variety of Vari-Lite VL3500 washes, VL500 TD, Clay Paky Sharpy Wash and Spot fixtures, Philips Color Kinetics ColorBlaze 72 instruments and Elation ePAR lights, to create a high-powered design, sure to reflect the energy of the event and artists.
