Rock the Vote!

Alright, so the wait is over. This year’s Showcase ballot has finally been revealed. As with every year, the event continues to evolve and improve (we like to think so, anyway). This year, you’ll notice that we’ve added five new categories, and there’s 57 acts making a first-time appearance on the ballot -- many of whom will be performing at the Showcase on Saturday, June 16, along with our unbelievable headliners Lucero and Dinosaur Jr. (who you can also catch tonight on Late Night with Craig Ferguson, BTW).

For the benefit of those who haven’t had the chance to pick up a paper yet (FYI: the ballot is on page 62), here’s the list of nominees for the 13th annual Westword Music Showcase. Once you’ve had a chance to peruse the list, please click here to cast your vote. And as always, if you think we blew it by not including your favorite act, feel free to add their name in the “Write In” slot.
