Boston Music Poll 2011: Last chance to catch these nominees live before voting ends May 12!

Sleigh Bells are at the 'Dise with Mr. Dream + CSS + Wet Witch on Tuesday

All right, this one goes out to all you procrastinators. You know who you are. Still wallowing on your couch in footie pajamas, drinking beers, and hoovering Lo Mein to the soundtrack of Two and a Half Men re-runs every night? We feel it's our responsibility to let you know that that's just plain sad and, furthermore, it's musically irresponsible. The polls for BMP 2011 close on Thursday, May 12 and if you haven't gotten out and heard at least one of the many nominees that have rolled through town over the past couple of months then we fear there may be no hope for you. But redemption is still within your reach. These hometown, and a few national, nominees all have gigs around town this week. Get out and check em' out- before those bed sores get gangrene- and then vote for your nods in Boston's Best Music Poll 2011 while there's still time. Be a chooser, not a loser and all that.
