BANDS: Submit Your Music for The Year End Best of SF 2009

Three nominees for our Year End Best of San Francisco Poll will be chosen through an Open Contest (the others from a jury of local "scene makers").

Submit your music for The Deli's Best of San Francisco Year End Poll
HERE by 12.23.2009. 

To be eligible your band needs to have music available online and have played live at least once in 2009 (and not to be signed to a major). By submitting, you will also add your band to our chart system, which will get you some exposure in the future.

The process we have implemented to choose the Best Emerging San Francisco Bay Area Artist of 2009 is a little complicated - if you are interested in knowing how it works please go here.
