Our man with a van, Kevin Curtin, surprised this year's Austin Music Award winners with a novelty check, gifts, and the appreciation from a thankful city. You voted and we're celebrating your choices with a little help from our sponsor, Cap Metro.
Below you can find video proof of that celebration thanks to some production assistance from Arts & Labor. Thanks also to photographer David Brendan Hall who not only captured his trademark incredible images but also distracted our winners while Kevin did his best to sneak up on them in a massive van.
