1997 Minnesota Music Awards Nominations Ballot
A few items of interest from the 1997 Minnesota Music Awards, held at First Avenue on 07/17/97. Chia nominated for "best other instrumentalist", Brynn nominated for "best male vocalist" and "best songwriter". Flipp deebut album nominated in "Major Label Recording" category, which City Pages later wrote about, saying it was technically ineligible due to it's release date. Flipp did NOT appear at the Music Awards presentation show, they were somewhere out on the road out on tour with Cheap Trick at the time. I do not believe they took home any of the awards for their 1997 nominations.
