Best of the Bay Readers’ Poll 2009: The Best Local Band race continues in earnest

It's another Best of the Bay Reader's Poll race you want to know about, especially if you're a musician working the local scene and are actively encouraging your fans to vote. This category has always been a popular one since it gives Tampa Bay bands the chance to receive much-coveted props from the people who actually go out to see their music.

Currently, it's a rather interesting race, with six very different bands jockeying for the lead: funkin' reggae makers Tribal Style, metal maniacs Mr. Bella, up-and-coming alt rockers Not Tonight Josephine, jazz fusionists Poetry n' Lotion, driving and stomping rock purveyors The Beauvilles, and Southern-countrified barn burners Roppongi's Ace.

There's still time to vote on your own local favorite, folks. Click here to do it now; polling ends Aug. 31.
