Picked To Click

Picked To Click, the annual best new local band poll from City Pages, is out. If you're into local (Minneapolis) music, here was my ballot:

  1. The Deaths
  2. Melodious Owl
  3. Spaghetti Western
  4. Olympic Hopefuls
  5. Thunder in the Valley

And the winner is: Olympic Hopefuls.

I wrote the blurb for the third-placer, Melodious Owl.

More local voters here, including my pals and yours, Dave Campbell, Marisa Collins, David de Young, Sonia Grover, Melissa Maerz, Steve Marsh, Ross Raihala, Matt Schmidt, Peter Scholtes, Lindsey Thomas, Karrie Vrabel, Gretchen Williams, and a zillion others.

Here's some miscellaneous local music commentary from the vote-casters.
