The CASBY (Canadian Artists Selected By You) Music Awards began in 1981 as an alternative to the Juno Awards and were originally called the U-Knows. Unlike many awards shows, CASBY winners are chosen entirely by the fans. Over the years, CASBYs have been handed out to Alexisonfire, Arcade Fire, Billy Talent, Finger Eleven and many others.

Presented by Toronto radio station, the Edge, the 2008 CASBYs take place on Wednesday, October 22 at the Kool Haus in Toronto and features performances by Canadian rock bands, including City and Colour, Sloan, Neverending White Lights, Tokyo Police Club and Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker (USS), plus awards for Favourite New Artist, Single, Album and the NXNE Favourite New Indie Release.

Voting for this year’s CASBY winners runs until Friday, October 17 at 11:59 p.m. on www.edge.ca. To be eligible for a 2008 CASBY Music Award, material must have been released between September 1, 2007 and August 31, 2008.
