On April 1 in the Moscow Youth Concert Hall was the 8th annual rock-n-roll awards ceremony "Deprived Childhood." According to the organizers, the winners for different years included musical groups such as Sunday, Time-Out, Mongol-Shuudan, Aria, and Ba-Bank. Most of these musicians are still not even aware that they have had a deprived childhood, because this ceremony is unlikely to be taken seriously by anyone besides the organizers. The first prize is a tee-shirt with the inscription "I deprived my childhood." This year, there were 18 nominations. Among them is the traditional "Song of the Year" category, in which the song "They Killed a Negro" won first place.
Some other examples:
Album of the Year- Ivan Kupola (Kostroma)
Vocalist of the Year- Arthur Berkut (Maverick)
Female Vocalist of the Year- Oksana Chush' (Regular Parts of Opportunists)
Among other categories, my favorite was Nightmare of the Year, which was won by Zemphira.
The group Aria, who won in the category "Most Nation Group," never appeared at the ceremony. On the other hand, music fans attending were able to hear a performance by the group The King and the Joker, as well as Maverick, Black Coffee, and Regular Parts of Opportunists.
