Best of New England 2010 for emerging bands - Submit via Sonicbids

Deli-rious readership,

We gave bands a week to apply for free to our Year End Best of New England 2010 Poll, but submissions aren't closed - we are now still accepting them until 12.31 HERE, through SonicBids, with a $5 submission fee. It's the first time we charge musicians for anything, but these polls take so much of our time that we needed to find a way to offset some of the personal effort we put in them, we hope you understand.

The Deli's Polls' mission is to highlight the best local bands that emerged in 2010 in the 10 scenes we cover - the full list of cities we cover can be found here.

Our polling system (based on the votes of a local jury of scene makers and partially on our readers vote) has rewarded in the past artists like Local Natives, Yeasayer, Girls, Chairlift, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Freelance Whales, Sleigh Bells and Neon Indian (among others) before they hit it big.

The summary of last year's polls (each city's top 3 + readers poll winner) can be found here.
A full explanation of the polling system can be found here.

We hope you'll submit your music, because the more bands submit, the more accurate our poll is - we will consider any band!

Good luck, and... we swear that we will listen to your music!

VulGarrity Release "Dance 2 the Grave" Friday at Providence's Colosseum

VulGarrity, one of this month's Band of the Month nominees, release their new album, "Dance 2 the Grave," this Friday at Providence's Colosseum.  VulGarrity have always had a dark, edgy overtone to their music, and they've fully embraced it with this album.  The duo (that's right - and keep it in mind when you listen to their music!) spellbinds live:  they both sing, they rotate drum and bass duty, and they also manage to add layered and harmonizing guitar to the mix via loop pedal.  They nail the epic, swooping guitar licks and double vocals of the hair metal days of yore, while thumping drums and wildly fuzzy bass propel the songs with a more modern groove.

Check out the video for their new single, "Freakshow," here.  Then catch the CD release party - the price of the album is included in admission (which is only $8 advance and $10 at the door), and the show is also a costume party and contest!  Also performing are Echo Son, Arma, and SEXCoffee.

10/22 / Colosseum / $8 adv, $10 door / 7:30pm / All Ages
