First Avenue's Best New Bands of 2011 announced
With all of the holiday hubbub this week, this one almost got lost in the shuffle: the lineup for First Avenue's annual Best New Bands showcase was announced last Friday afternoon on Radio K's Off the Record, and now those of us who missed the live reveal can check out the seven chosen bands thanks to an announcement on the venue's site.
Five of the seven showcasing bands -- blood&stuff, Dream Crusher, Gramma's Boyfriend, MaLLy, and Night Moves -- placed in this year's Picked to Click poll, and they will perform alongside fellow newcomers Fire in the Northern Firs and Sexcat.
