UPDATE: In the last day or Food Will Win the War has surged ahead of Doco by a 73%-27% margin, which leads us to suspect that FWWtW fans have discovered the majesty of ToR. The question now is whether Doco loyalists will strike back. We’ll know soon – polls close at midnight Thursday. Listen and get your votes in…
In last week’s match, Boulder’s Rose Hill Drive eliminated Antony & the Johnsons by a margin of 62%-38%. We’re not sure if this is an upset or not since A&tJ have a much higher international profile, but congratulations to both bands for a fine showing. RHD moves on to round 2, where they’ll face the winner of this week’s contest.
Our first contestant, from Raleigh, NC, please welcome the very hip, rootsy blues/punk/funk of Doco.
