We here at CL got some relief from our post-Independence Day letdown today after finding out that the paper received five(!) award nominations from the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies. AAN received more than 1,000 submissions from 88 alternative publications in the U.S. and Canada for this year's awards.

And the nominees are...
ARTS CRITICISM circulation 50,000 and over
Creative Loafing (Atlanta): I Miss My Weird, F*%ked Up Theater, Cult Following, and Beast of Burden by Curt Holman

MEDIA REPORTING / CRITICISM circulation 50,000 and over
