Another year, another Hometown for the Holidays competition! This is something I look forward to each year because I love when locals get played on the radio, and the finale is one of the best parties of the year! Hometown for the Holidays really is the office party for the music scene, and I love being able to see everyone in one place, in support of local music.
This year feels a bit different though as I’ve recently moved to NYC, but will be back in Colorado for the finale – and I can’t wait to see everyone! Another reason this year feels different, there are so many new names! I love that this competition brings out so many new bands of different genres and styles – and that they make the top 10!
Below are the top 10 bands, in alphabetical order:
888 – Critical Mistakes
Covex & Enzalla – Ordinary Lies
Hillary Hand – In My Head
Foxfield Four – Steady to Me
Mawule – Mirror Mirror
Miguel Dakota & the Differents – Rely on You
OptycNerd – Marathons
P O P F I L T E R – Empire
Redlands – Top Shelf Liquor
Shatterproof – Karma
I don’t think I have my list picked out just yet, but I’m excited to spend the next week listening to these bands on the radio! Also, for those of you on Twitter, I’ve added the top 10 bands to a list, so you can easily follow them all. (Yay for them all being on Twitter)!
