Best of 2014 for Emerging KC Bands: FINAL RESULTS! BUMMER, The Philistines, Katy Guillen & the Girls





Best of 2014 for Emerging KC Bands: FINAL RESULTS! BUMMER, The Philistines, Katy Guillen & the Girls

Deli Nation,

Our Year-End Poll for Emerging Kansas City artists is now complete! Kudos to grungy punk trio BUMMER (photo above by Crystal Faye Photography) for winning the poll!
 
 
 
And congrats to our runners up, the enigmatic psychedelic six-piece The Philistines and the compelling roots rock trio Katy Guillen and the Girls (who took second place in 2013)!

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+ KC scene experts (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 KC produced in 2014, this list is all you need. Enjoy!
