Voting for the 2012 City Weekly Music Awards band of the year continues through Thursday. The band showcases will then commence this weekend. Let the party begin!---
The CWMA band showcases kick off Friday, Feb. 3, with two shows Friday and two shows Saturday, followed by four more the next weekend. But before that gets cranking, the Top 25 bands are still vying for your clicks.
Online voting ends at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2., so keep those votes rolling in. The voting began a few weeks ago, and you can cast your vote here. We take one vote per IP address.
After Feb. 2, you can vote for your favorite band in person at each showcase. And note that the in-person votes weigh in heavier than the online votes.
