If the Flobots are bummed with the recent bad show review they got, maybe the news from Music Choice will excite them. The band's video, "Handlebars," was nominated in two categories in the channel's Most Demanded: Music Choice Video On-Demand Awards '08. The first was "Alternative Video of the Year" where they're going up against Paramore's "Misery Business" and Metro Station's "Shake It." The second nomination is for "What the ...? Video of the Year" where they're up against Kanye West and his "Flashing Lights" video and Rihanna's "Disturbia."
In December, Music Choice will air the awards in four parts on Music Choice on Demand, hosted by Geffen Records recording artists Jessica and Janelle Martinez of Prima J (who?).
