City Pages gets Best Music Writing honors
Da Capo's annual Best Music Writing anthology collects great pieces from the previous year into one handy volume. Authors whose work has been collected for the tome are notified well in advance, but each season there are Honorable Mentions announced later.
Idolator has reported that Peter S. Scholtes and Kevin Cannon's work on the Twin Cities Rock Atlas earned them one of these awards. This puts Scholtes and Cannon in some exclusive company.
Other pieces selected for Honorable Mention include four from the New York Times, one from the Washington Post, and others from Billboard, Salon, The Nation, and New York magazine among others.
