Best of SF Bay Area 2014 for Emerging Artists: FINAL RESULTS: 1. Down and Outlaws, 2. Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah, 3. Assateague

Deli Nation,

Our Year End Poll for Emerging SF Bay Area Artists was - as usual - a painstaking (and somewhat excruciating) process, but we pulled it off with remarkable flair!

Kudos to garage rockers, Down and Outlaws, our new Deli SF Bay Area Artist of the Year!!!

Thumbs up to the awesome psych- soul band, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah:

And to the great indie-folk band, Assateague:

Here is how it all went down: first, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees. Then we polled a list of 15+ SF Bay Area scene expert (our jury) and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each. Then we polled our writers, then we polled our readers. We tried to keep things open for each single genre, from Indie Rock to Roots Music to Hip Hop.

If you are a geek interested in all the subtelties related to how this poll works, you can read its rules here (happy reading!). But if all you care about is the awesome new music SF Bay Area produced in the year 2013, this list is all you need. Enjoy!

Fine Points and Color War Support Morgan Delt at The Chapel - 2/4

Bay Area based bands, Fine Points and Color War will support Sup Pop Records artist, Morgan Delt at the Chapel in San Francisco on Wednesday, February 4th. Fine Points and Color War are new underground bands who quietly feature veteran (kind of a big deal) local musicians. Fine Points has been known to include members of the San Francisco based psych soul band, Sleepy Sun and Tim Cohen of The Fresh & Onlys plays in Color War.

This is one of those shows that you can totally miss if you're not in the know. Luckily you have us here at the Deli to tell you that attending this show means you'll be walking into an underground rock gold mine.

Newly signed Sub Pop Records artist, Morgan Delt will be headlining the show. His experimental rock music will softly melt your face and lead you down a rabbit hole of tightly composed art nouveau alternative sounscapes. This is going be a cool show. Don't miss it!
