Offspring being honored at 2014 OC Music Awards
Congrats to The Offspring, who will be saluted with the Orange County Impact and Lifetime Achievement honor at the annual OC Music Awards. The honor annually goes to a renowned local band or artist that has left a major impact on the Orange County music scene, and the Huntington Beach, Calif. natives have definitely done that.
In the release, organizers stated, “The Offspring’s impact on artists, the music community and fans is undeniable. With more than 40 million records sold and fans across the globe, it is OC Music Awards honor to recognize The Offspring with the 2014 OC Impact Award.”
The band follows in the footsteps of such past OC Impact honorees as The Vandals, Social Distortion and Thrice. The special presentation will be made at the 13th Annual OC Music Awards at the City National Grove of Anaheim on March 8. While the group will be on hand, they are not expected to perform at the ceremony. Tickets for the OC Music Awards are currently available at this location.
The Offspring are also up for the Best Alternative Act at the OC Music Awards. Other rock and metal nominees at the event include Avenged Sevenfold, Stick to Your Guns, Social Distortion, The Adolescents and more. The Offspring are currently enjoying a break in the schedule, but will return to touring in Europe this May. Tour dates can be seen here.
