BEST ALT ROCK BAND: Marksmen

Tampa’s Marksmen alt-rocks with a Southern charm on their debut full-length Sister Of Mine. Few bands can successfully merge powerful lyrics delivered by a unique voice and accompanied by emotive music without sounding heavy-handed. For that, the band was awarded a four-star review in February — and every live performance we catch only cements our opinion of them as one of Tampa’s best. facebook.com/MarksmenBand.
