The founders of the Shortlist Music Awards, to be announced Tuesday night at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, know what they're up against in the vastly overcrowded awards-show field, but they are optimistic that they can be noticed. It helps that they have a relatively modest goal. They're not out to top the ratings of the MTV Video Music Awards or other televised awards specials; they just want to let fans know about records that probably won't be honored at all those other ceremonies.

Refreshingly cutting against the grain of mainstream awards that slice music into ever more confining categories, the inaugural Virgin Megastore Shortlist Prize for Artistic Achievement in Music featured brief performances by the winner, atmospheric Icelandic band Sigur Ros, and three other nominees during a ceremony Monday at the Knitting Factory Hollywood.

The third annual Shortlist Music Awards put Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice at the top of the stack during a Sunday concert at the Wiltern. Thankfully short on ceremony, the program featured brief sets by eight of the 10 finalists that were determined to have "today's most creative albums, as selected by the world's top musicians" (and KCRW-FM host Nic Harcourt, among other judges).
