Update: By now, you've probably heard but just in case you haven't, Epilogues took home this year's Hometown for the Holidays crown at Andrew's On Lincoln this past Friday night. Beyond bragging rights for the next year, the act won three days of recording time at the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, $250 Best Buy gift cards and an invite to play at the station's Not So Silent Night gig next year. The Heyday, this year's runner-up, earned the nod as this year's crowd favorite, which earned them a thousand bucks. Churchill, meanwhile, didn't walk away completely empty handed. In addition to the exposure of being listed one of the final three, the band received a photo session with Don Searle Photography. Speaking of pictures: Two of our photographers, Aaron Thackeray and Brian Landis Folkins, were at the gig and sent us pictures to prove it.
