The 2nd and possibly annual awards event presented by A-Sides with Jon Chattman.

The Oscars are set for Sunday, March 2, but a day before that Yonkers’ native Jon Chattman is bringing his own awards show to the Alamo Drafthouse. Don’t expect leggy blondes and mindless water-cooler “reporters” at this show – instead you'll get an evening of “pop-stalgia”: meaningful performances and meaningless — but well-intentioned — awards. Hosted by Broadway star and Westchester native John Treacy Egan (Sister Act), the show will honor an eclectic mix of pop culture royalty: party-anthem rocker Andrew W.K. (Lifetime Achievement in Partying), Capitol Theatre owner Peter Shapiro (Westchester’s Savior Award), Tony-Award Winning and Blue Bloods actor Gregory Jbara (Jbest Achievement Putting a Voice to Someone Else’s Face), Tony Nominee and Broadway Star Constantine Maroulis (Lifetime Achievement of Being Constantine Maroulis Award) and rising rock group The Chevin (Buzz Band - 2014). Set to receive the Mom & Pop Award will be Coffee Labs in Tarrytown and Yonkers Brewery Co. in Yonkers. Rounding out the honorees will be Gary Gnu, a legendary newsman from the immortal 1980s series The Great Space Coaster and his puppeteer Jim Martin.

There will also be live music performances from The Chevin, Emily Angell, Todd Carey, Mary C. and the Stellars, Gary Chattman, Bearbones, and Charlie Scopoletti. Last year’s emcee Carlos A. Gonzalez will provide comedy while Mike Allan of Extreme Music Productions will serve as the house DJ.
