Yes, we know. That's a loaded question and also an unreasonable query. Best of anything is relative. Music is subjective. It isn't and shouldn't be a competition. While we tend to agree with all that, we feel compelled to inform you that the folks at KBPI are once again in search of the BBID. The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 2. Voting to for the initial bands begins at noon that same same day and runs through 5 p.m. Wednesday, October 7. Then, beginning Saturday, October 10, the bands in contention will perform each Saturday at Eck's Saloon. Past winners include Adam's Ruin, Lost Point and 20XIII. There's a whole list of dos and don'ts on the station's website for those interested in earning this year's bragging rights. Have at it.
