    I’m a little disappointed that it seems like there are no up and coming bands this year as there have been in the past–e.g. Museum Guards 2 years ago & Shut Up Tim (gotta love that name!) last year. Nice kids who make nice music together. Always applauded whoever booked the local acts stage for giving these kids a chance to perform in front of an audience like that, give them critical exposure. Who knows who might make it to the top–the next Beatles, Rolling Stones–even the next Sirsy, now on their national tour! (I assure you, however, there will NOT be a “next PK!!!!”)
