STL Music Poll

Well it looks like despite the insane amount of evangelizing Jason, Jim and I did, we did not win the RFT Best Garage Band Award. Part of me wants to ask the folks at the RFT for a count because I believe that a ridiculous amount of people voted for us. Problem was, that we were a write-in and I don't think the whole voting system was set up to deal with the possibility of a write-in winning.

The first inkling I had that things were not going to go so well was when I found out that there was an Academy Awards style ceremony planned for the night before. Of course, all of the nominated bands were in attendance but what about the possibility of a write-in? I don't think the RFT planned for that contingency because the idea that a write-in could win seemed like such a long shot.

So I guess what I am saying is that if we did win, I don't think the RFT counted us. Or maybe we just didn't. Maybe Johny O and the Jerks beat us fair and square.

Who knows and more to the point who cares? I would rather focus on the fact that our show last night with the Rockford Mules and Kentucky Knife Fight was our best show yet (with me in the band). If you haven't come out to see us you should. We are evolving into an insanely tight musical fuckin' juggernaut!

This time next year we may not even be able to be nominated for Best Garage Band because we will have broken out of the confines of that label. They will have to create a new musical category. Best Left Arm band...and your choices will be:

A. Left Arm
B. Left Arm
C. Left Arm
D. Left Arm

No write-in either cuz lets face it, that's a waste of everyones time.
