Fall 2009 Countdown: Best Local Band?

Our online poll is still open for you to VOTE for the most radical music on the planet! Everyday, KEXP will countdown an awesome music theme for the Fall Membership Drive, ranging from the best album ever made to the most killer music scene. One of the questions you’ll be asked is what is the best local band? Is it the industrious Skinny Puppy from Vancouver, British Columbia? The brassified Hey Marseilles from our very own Seattle? The legendary Elliott Smith from Portland (at least where he spent most of his career)? Or how about Issaquah, Washington’s Modest Mouse?

Modest Mouse – King Rat

KEXP relies on you, the fans, so use your voice and cast your vote right here — write in your own favorites or choose from our list of suggested entries.

Remember, the polls close at midnight on Monday, September 28, so vote now! Make sure to tune in October 3-9 to follow the countdown of your favorite tunes and pledge your support.
