Re: “Best Local Band

I'm not a huge part of the music scene in Boise but I have NEVER heard of this band.. Hillfolk Noir I have seen several times this past year and they are awesome and very original! Something just seems amiss here!

Re: “Best Local Band

But if you retire the winners then it's no longer a "best local band" but instead it is the "best new local band" or "best band who hasn't won before"

best local band is exactly that IMHO :)

Re: “Best Political Circus

It was pretty clear why de' Otter mon' insisted that every candidate participate in this debate! Something needed to make him look like the best option. This was by far, one of the most entertaining moments I had as I waited for warm weather to commence.

Re: “Best Local Band

Cover bands should have their own category. Also this result reflects very poorly on our city.

Re: “Best Local Thai

I guess that your readers haven't yet ventured out to Thai Cuisine on Overland Road. Best Thai in the Valley hands down!

The dining area is great for families and the food is good!

Re: “Best Local Musician

My hero, always makes me feel good with his singing! Always makes me feel welcome when I go listen to the band too!

Best Bakery and no mention of Janjou? Very weird.

Re: “Best Local Band

Yeah, something would be nice to shake it up a little. Though BtS DID actually play a couple shows in Idaho this year ;-) Big Wow primarily plays private events, so that's an interesting win... Way to go Sal!
Sometimes BW puts the previous year's winner as the easiest option to check... so anyone that's just voting on a couple unrelated things and not that focused on Arts/Entertainment will just blow through and check the first box they see in that category. Not saying it's unlikely the "incumbent" wouldn't win again anyway-- but do they really need that kind of assist to do it?

Re: “Best Local Band

Seems like a good idea would be to retire the winners from the future pool of potential winners. Willamette Week does that and it keeps the list from looking too homogenous.

Re: “Best Local Art Gallery

Who won best gallery in 2009? Seems that this category is the only one that does not list the 2009 winner.
