I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love this time of year! The top 10 bands for 93.3 KTCL’s Hometown for the Holidays bands were announced tonight at Not So Silent Night. Playing NSSN was Bastille, Saints of Valory, New Politics, Grouplove, Young the Giant and Hometown for the Holidays 2012 winners, My Body Sings Electric. Supporting local bands is definitely a passion of mine and I just love hearing the announcement. Makes me proud to know these bands, they’ve all worked so hard!
