The Scope's Best of St. John's

Last night indie paper The Scope threw what's become one of the most anticipated parties of the holiday season.

The Scope decided to make it doubly special by, not only celebrating the winners of the Best of St. John's readers' survey, but also the Atlantis Music Prize, which is "a juried award for Newfoundland and Labrador album of the year, judged on artistic merit, without regard to sales or genre." seen knows that because we swiped it directly from The Scope's Atlantis Prize website.

First of all, we here at cbc.ca/nl want to thank The Scope's readers and The Scope because we received the award for the best local news website. Thanks, guys. It means a lot.

Afterwards, some of St. John's best known bands stepped up to perform, including Sherman Downey, The Gramercy Riffs, the Pathological Lovers, Colonel Craze & the Hunch and The Subtitles.

And who did the prize go to? It was tie between the Gramercy Riffs and the Pathological Lovers. Congrats.
