At The Drive-In Dominate PLUG Indie Awards





At the Drive-In, that brilliant band that may or may not still actually be a band, racked up four awards from the inaugural PLUG Independent Music Awardsówhich are voted on by
tastemakers from independent press, radio, and retail outlets (and will not hold an actual ceremony...too friggin' corporate). ATDI won awards for
Artist/Band of the Year, Album of the Year for Relationship of Command, Song of the Year for "One Armed Scissor," and Live Act of the Year. Other winners
included Coldplay, Badly Drawn Boy, Grandaddy, AIR, Juliana Theory, and Aimee Mann.


In an effort to be indie and different, PLUG is not holding a ceremony to give out the awards, but instead is issuing a promotional CD, featuring many of the winners, to the music industry to
help spread the word.
