Deli readers in bands,
Every year, The Deli's Year End Polls highlight hundreds of the best emerging artists in the 11 (soon 12) US scenes we cover - and reward them with prizes from our sponsors.
As you may know, the winner of the NYC poll will grace the cover of the spring issue of The Deli - and will be rewarded with other prizes.
Now established artists like Foxygen, Vampire Weekends, Lucius, Caveman, Fidlar, Snowmine, Local Natives, Yeasayer, Twin Shadow, Vivian Girls, Ra Ra Riot, Girls, Kurt Vile, Baths, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Blank Dogs, Buke and Gass and many others won or did well in our polls months if not years before getting international recognition.
The end of the 2013 is quickly approaching and we are ready to go through the painstaking 2 month process involved in selecting the artists and processing the various votes. We are already asking our local jurors (mostly venue promoters, bloggers, record store and radio personnel) to cast their vote for their favorite local emerging artists. But of course, our polls are open to all bands who want to be considered: free submissions are open from now until December 9th HERE. All these submissions will be grouped by genre and filtered by The Deli's local editors and some Deli writers.
To submit for consideration and for more info about our year end polls please go HERE.
