Posted By on Thu, Sep 10, 2009 at 8:15 AM


The Bay Area music scene's crazy with talent, and we've been working hard as of late to narrow that massive creative pool down to 40 acts worthy of jumping on this year's Music Awards Ballot.

So after much research by own own staff, and much polling of respected members of the music industry, we've arrived at the top four acts in ten categories. (Note: We tried to avoid nominating acts that have won in previous years).

Rap/Hip-Hop: Alexander Spit; Themselves; 40Love; The Jacka

Electronic/DJ: Mochipet; Lazer Sword; Tenderlions; Hottub

International: Baba Ken and the Afro-Groove Connexion: Rupa & the April Fishes; Sila and the Afrofunk Experience; Santero

Soul/R&B/Funk: Joe Bagale; Kev Choice; Jennifer Johns; The California Honeydrops

Indie Rock/Pop: Girls: The Morning Benders; The Downer Party; Sleepy Sun

Metal/Psych/Punk: Ty Segall; Hunx and His Punx; Triclops!; The Fresh & Onlys

Jazz/Blues: Adam Theis; Spaceheater; Wayne Wallace; Gaucho

Experimental, Etc.: Tussle; Barn Owl; Weasel Walter; The Alps

Alt-Country/Folk/Singer-Songwriter: Joe Goldmark & The Seducers; Emily Jane White; Goh Nakamura; Two Sheds

Club Night: Tormenta Tropical; Sweater Funk; El Superrritmo; [kontrol.sf]

Cast your vote between now and Wednesday, October 14 here. Winners will be announced on Thursday, October 15 at the big Music Awards bash at Ruby Skye.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
