This whole thing is just ridiculous. Let's keep putting the same bands (some who aren't even really together anymore) both on the ballot and at the event every year. That's totally show casing what the Denver scene is like now.

This whole thing is just ridiculous. Quit putting the same bands on every year (some who are no longer even together) and don't just throw bands in a category they don't belong in. So many good bands across the board were nominated and only a handful were new and got picked. This is not show casing what what Denver is doing now very well.

Maybe for 2015 there should be a cap on nominees? Votes have got to be all over the board with up to 12 nominees. If there were a maximum of 5 or 6, I think it makes for a much tighter, more fair contest.
