Photo Gallery: The 2017 Boston Music Awards at The House of Blues
 

Editor's Note: The Boston Music Awards are always framed as a celebration of our city's music scene, and last night at The House of Blues (December 7), that notion was front and center. The awards gala was more rock show than ceremony, stacking the first few hours with live performances that ran the gamut of genre: The yearning post-hardcore of 617 Sessions winners no hope/no harm; the bouncy disco stylings of Camino 84; Latrell James' ultra-magnetic showmanship soundtracking a modern blend of beats and soul; the supercharged firecracker rock of Carissa Johnson and Weakened Friends; and the soulful sermon of Bad Rabbits, led by always-on-point frontman Fredua Boakye. Perhaps no crew walked out with a larger contingent of "new fans" than like STL GLD, the born duo of Moe Pope and The Arcitype that has expanded to a full ensemble of thoughts and rhymes, blowing away any perceived limitations of what a live hip-hop show could be. And that's pretty much just the half of it. As we recover this morning, María Alejandra Mata recaps the entire night of performances and awards -- highlights on stage include STL GLD taking home Album of the Year for Torch Song, and Weakened Friends winning Unsigned Artist of the Year -- and you can view her full gallery below. Meanwhile, recap the winners in all 36 BMAs categories here.
