Local Natives are The Deli's Best Emerging LA Band of 2009!





Local Natives are The Deli's Best Emerging LA Band of 2009!

Deli-cious Readers,

After weeks of voting and calculating we finally have the winner of our LA Best of 2009 Poll for emerging artists. Local Natives topped our final chart thanks to a very strong consensus amongst our Jurors - mostly composed of local venue promoters, independent radio DJs, record store staff etc. (list coming soon). Because of this the band will be rewarded with the cover of the Spring Issue of The Deli Magazine! Hurrah!

This is their new video of the single Airplanes - coincidentally released today!



Also congrats to Fitz and the Tantrums and Crash Kings, who placed 2nd and third in the Overall charts, and Light FMMy Imaginary Friend and Lemon Sun, who rocked on the Fans' Poll side of things (see the readers' Top 10 chart in the next blog entry).

As we are sure you'll be wondering how the point system works, each juror was asked to vote for 3 LA based emerging artists (best band gets 3 points, 2nd best gets 2 and 3rd best gets 1 point); Deli writers also had 3 choices, but they only counted 1 point each. Reader's vote counted 3 points for the winner, 2 for second place, 1 for 3rd place, 0.001 per vote for all the other artists. Open Contest points (here added to the writers' column) counted 1 point for the winner, 0.75 for 2nd place and 3rd for 3rd place. If you want to get even more confused check out the poll's rules here. It's just a little complicated, but extremely transparent!


This chart of course doesn't represent the "truth" about the emerging LA scene, but we did our best to create a system that has some kind of validity. For us this poll is really just a fun way to give exposure to (and also get to know some new) emerging local artists, keep in touch with what's going on in the scene and waste a lot of time organizing 9 (nine) of these polls in each city we cover.

An exhausted Deli's Staff.
