We're getting cranked up for Best of the Bay yes, already and this year more than ever we want your input early in the process. We just had a brainstorm meeting to choose award categories for the Readers' Poll, which we're expanding this year. We're in the process of fine-tuning our choices, and we don't want to miss out on any great ideas.
As usual, we're going to have a bunch of Readers' Poll categories in Music. Our list includes some perennials Best Local Band, Best Concert Venue, Best Singer/Songwriter and some new ones (Best Jam Band). Here's your chance to suggest a category you'd like to see. (Best Autoharpist, Best Tuvian Throat Singer, whatever. Maybe even something more sensible.)
We're finalizing the categories next Tuesday, so the deadline to add suggestions in the Comments section below is Mon., June 8 at 5 p.m.
And just to be perfectly clear: We're not looking for who you think should win, just the category itself. Thanks!
