Maybe you voted for Ghettosocks, a first-time winner in the category, after watching him beat the snot out of a giant dinosaur in his video Step To A T-Rex, which was also nominated for ECMA hip-hop single of the year. Or maybe because you listened to one of last year’s winners for Best New Artist, Adam Bowles of The Crimson Tides, who told you to buy his album, Get Some Friends. We couldn’t track down the elusive Ghettosocks, but the list of upcoming shows on his MySpace explains it all: Boston, Portland and Brooklyn, with spring dates in Germany, Poland and Denmark.
