The countdown to the Phoenix's annual, reader-voted BEST MUSIC POLL is just about over. To find out who won, check online and in the fishwrap tomorrow morning: this year's Best New Act will be staring back at you from newsboxes all over the city.
This evening at 5 pm, we continue our BEST MUSIC WEEK series of free, outdoor concerts in Downtown Crossing -- with $3 Bud and a wine bar for the adults. For tonight's show: the blog-rock edition. We asked our favorite music blogs to curate the stage. (At this point we pause to award special recognition to Bradley's Almanac, since it was one of the original inspirations -- waaaay back in the day -- for OTD.) Of course they all came up with pure awesomeness.
IN ADDITION: after the music ends tonight, we've also got a swanky afterparty at the AMES HOTEL, a short jaunt from Downtown Crossing. Check here for details.
