Stageside Blogging the HPMAs

Chris Gray and Brett Koshkin coming to you live from, well, Warehouse Live, where the Mighty Orq (above) is warming the slowly-arriving crowd with some bluesy guitar pyrotechnics. (Here's's Cactus Music's Quinn Bishop watching attentively.)

We've got the mobile command center set up at stage right (and even our own velvet rope to keep out the riff-raff). It's also next to WHL's ten-foot speaker cabinet, so we'll have no problems hearing the acceptance speeches. Sara Winter of WHL and the Messina Group just stopped by on her way to Snoop Dogg at Sam Houston Race Park. More in a bit.
