Best Drummer 

Warren Huegel

Internationally known and locally respected, Warren Huegel is in demand for his anchoring beat. As a member of S.F.–based band Tussle, which he left earlier this year, he effortlessly rode the line between introspective psychedelic rock and extroverted electronic dance music. He currently adds soulful stirrings to local outfits Citay and 3 Leafs; once a year, he joins psychedelic rockers University of Errors (led by Soft Machine and Gong co-founder Daevid Allen) on international tours. Huegel has also participated in two high-profile projects by Japanese experimentalists the Boredoms: 77 Boadrum and 88 Boadrum were live collaborations in New York and Los Angeles that featured 77 and 88 drummers, respectively, which have produced two albums and a documentary. And Huegel, who led the drummers on 88 Boadrum, has long shared his gift with others, teaching drumming and percussion lessons when his schedule permits at S.F.'s Paul Green School of Rock.
