DIG THIS AWARDS 2013

#DigThis13!!

With a largely new and invigorated editorial cast at DigBoston, we figured our debut award tour should reflect the tastes, sounds, and experiences we deem supreme. Thus began the struggle to consider past picks, stir in lots of new flavors, and decide what’s moving everybody from our intern pit to our design department at this very moment. To spice things up, we then threw that list at 10 of our favorite local celebs–actors, DJs, artists, directors–and asked them to add their own thoughts about the Greater Boston food and entertainment destinations that they couldn’t live without. Much like the celebs you read about in the check-out line, it turns out these Hub heroes and notorious villains are a lot like us after all.

A fiercely dedicated bilingual journalist and commentator with her pen on the pulse of parts of our increasingly majority-minority city that go unnoticed by most media, Marcela is currently a special correspondent for Telemundo Boston, an op-ed writer for the Boston Globe, and a regular NPR guest. She also may be our most fashionable local celeb, so pay attention.

————————————–
A ubiquitous Boston comedy and music force for more than a decade, Rob Potylo is perhaps best known for once stealing a Boston Music Award in mid-ceremony, interrupting visiting political figures, or any number of other arcane yet hysterical spectacles. The latest season of his Allston-based reality-sitcom, Quiet Desperation, is currently on YouTube.

————————————–
As an asset manager and board member of both the Lenny Zakim Fund and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Sam Slater is a busy man. Still, he finds time to produce movies like the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival selection Teacher of the Year, and the award-winning short film Oh, The Places You’ll Go at Burning Man! His latest project, Drinking Buddies, stars Olivia Wilde, and was released by Magnolia Pictures this past August.
————————————–

Boston’s smoothest singing siblings, Lisa and Louie Bello have serenaded every Hub crowd from First Night to first baseline at Fenway, where they’ve handled National Anthem duties for the Red Sox on multiple occasions. Louie is currently a nominee for Best Pop R&B artist at the Boston Music Awards, and for a Hollywood Music In Media Award.

————————————–

One of Boston’s top young comics and frequent performer at every last damn mirth hole around here, our celeb comedian Dig This arbiter also hosts The Bigg Nez show on UNregular Radio every weekday morning. As evidenced by his picks, he likes West Coast hip-hop and long walks with your beeatch.

————————————–

A beloved morning radio honcho from MIX 104.1 FM’s Karson & Kennedy show, we adore Kennedy for having an on-air vibe that reminds us of the free-wheeling broadcast glory days of yesteryear, and also for her keen sensibility of what those damn kids are currently gossiping about. Despite having to wake up before most of us each day, when she’s not yapping, Kennedy is also an avid long distance runner, having finished two Boston Marathons.

————————————–

A native of Roslindale, these days hardcore rap icon Slaine splits time between here and Los Angeles, where he’s continuing a film career that already counts memorable turns in the recent Hub classics Gone Baby Gone and The Town. His latest compilation, The Boston Project, features more than two-dozen local artists; Slaine’s next album, The King of Everything Else, drops next spring.

————————————–

Whereas some hip-hop DJs packed up their vinyl and cried foul when the underground rap era wound down, and others failed to adapt to the electronic soundscape, Frank White persevered to emerge as a choice crowd-mover on both sides of the river, and as one of the few local acts to rock at Boston Calling. Check out his recently released tribute to the Beastie Boys classic Paul’s Boutique for free on SoundCloud.
————————————–

There are DJs, there are promoters, and then there’s Nomadik, Boston’s premier ambassador to the brighter side of the urban music industry. As an organizer for the New England outpost of the Dilla Foundation and as Boston chapter leader for the Universal Zulu Nation, Nomadik has helped enlighten the local rap scene for more than a decade as a college radio favorite and through her promotions enterprise, Soulkore Productions.

————————————–

Penciler. Inker. Designer. Comic book hero in his own right. These are all adequate descriptions of Rob Stull, a Boston-bred and based artist whose massive canon of work include issues of Spider-Man, Iron Man, X-Force, Wolverine, Firestorm, and many, many more favorites from the underground to the highest Marvel echelons. In addition to tackling projects through his Ink On Paper studio, Stull is also the director of visual arts for Melting Earth Production Group, which handles music videos for businesses and music artists.

    Biddy Early’s was not the only bar to stay open during the bombings by a long shot. There were three in JP open throughout it all and many of my bartending friends all worked through it to.
