Re: “Best Local Jewelry Maker

Congratulations to the top 3 as well as everyone else who is creating and pushing the limits of jewelry creation here in the great city of Boise!

Re: “Best Local Band

"reflects poorly on our city" &"amiss"....just plain funny. FYI when I voted, Big Wow Band wasn't even listed as a voting option in the list. This win was from write-in votes.

Re: “Best Local Musician

Hey, Clint Budge wasn't even listed as a voting option. All of his votes came in as a write-in. Yes, this does make sense!

Re: “Best Local Band

No. Nothings amiss. You obviously dont get out much. If you havent seen them you need too. Best band in town by far. Big Wow and Clint are hands down the best. They should of won it last year.

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 Local Band

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

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

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.

Re: “Best Local Movie Theater

Thirty years ago The Flicks started Boise's Grand March To becoming the livable and interesting city it is today. Thanks to The Flick's owners and others like them, Boise's Downtown is alive and thriving. Boise has matured into a more open hearted city. It even seems as though the average IQ has soared !

Re: “Best Local Band

Should BTS even be eligible? Don't think they did a show here the entire year. I'm glad they are successful, but they are not really a "local" band.
