Will Adam Lambert Be At Tonight’s OUTMusic Awards? Do You Even Know What That Is?

oma09

You would be forgiven for not realizing that tonight, the OUTMusic Awards are going down in Manhattan at Webster Hall, because there has been, like, zero promotion for the event, which is really a NYC-centric thing pretending its a national awards show. But hey, it’s the only music awards show that LOGO can score the rights for!

Your hosts will be Noah’s Arc‘s and funny lady Kate Clinton — because Neil Patrick Harris cannot host every awards show. And also, he is expensive. But: Kevin Aviance and Deborah Harry will be there! He’s getting a Lifetime Achievement Award; she a Pillar Award.

And now before you think we’re just finding something else gay to crap on, honestly, we’re glad an event like the OUTMusic Awards even exist. (It’s been around since 2001, we think.) Because you think the Grammys are going to hand out statues for Outstanding Cabaret Song? Didn’t think so.

According to Facebook, 136 people have confirmed their attendance; 504 people aren’t going. But Adam Lambert is in New York City, so maybe he’ll drop in?
