Revolver Golden Gods Awards at Club Nokia

I had an enjoyable time checking out the Revolver Golden Gods Awards show last year at Club Nokia. It had a few bumps and bruises, but it was excellent to see the Heavy Metal community rightly celebrated. The line up for this year was very strong and the list of appearances was extremely impressive.

Contrary to popular belief, I am unable to attend every concert that piques my interest. Since I was unable to attend, I sent Capital M to photograph the black carpet and check out Hard Rock Chick's report on the proceedings here.
