Midtown swank at the 2011 Pitch Music Awards, last night at the Uptown
The usual crowd — country punks, earnest rappers, midtown scenesters and hangers-on — descended upon the Uptown Theater Sunday night for The Pitch Music Awards. Nominated acts, friends of nominated acts, and high net-worth individuals such as myself gathered in the adjacent Conspiracy Room prior to the ceremony for a glorious two-hour open bar. People stood around talking and holding paper plates with different flavors of cubed cheese on them. The bartenders hustled. They poured the wine all the way to the top of our clear plastic cups. “Actually, can you make that five Pale Ales?” I asked.
