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.
Tonight, those of you who can make it over to the Independent in Union Square in Somerville have a chance to be among the first to hear Together (it hasn't even leaked yet!), the newest from Canadian pop supergroup THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS, thanks to Matador, WZBC, and Bradley's Almanac. Oh, and Pabst Blue Ribbon, also.
