BEST MUSIC WEEK: John Shade, Kingsley Flood, and Magic Magic at 5 pm in Downtown Crossing

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.

KINGSLEY FLOOD (selected by BOSTONBANDCRUSH.COM)

 

MAGIC MAGIC (selected by BRADLEYSALMANAC.COM)

TOMORROW AND THE RAIN: The weatherman says there's a 95 percent chance of rain tomorrow. This presents a slight problem for our outdoor show. Never fear: the show will go on . . . but indoors. Same great bands: Mystery Roar, Bearstronaut, and Mean Creek. Admission is still FREE. The times will stay the same -- 5 to 8 pm -- and we're moving the whole shindig to the REVOLUTION ROCK BAR.
