Equals wins The Deli's Best of Austin Poll for Emerging Artists, followed by The Saint James Society and Gashcat

Equals wins The Deli's Best of Austin Poll for Emerging Artists, followed by The Saint James Society and Gashcat

Deli Readers,

Here are the final results of The Deli's Best of Austin 2011 Poll for Emerging Artists. As you may know, this poll is the result of a 2 month long process during which we asked local scenemakers, Deli writers and readers their opinion about the best emerging local bands of the year that just ended. The chart below is the summary of all these votes.

1. EQUALS

Congrats - again - to Equals, whose win in the readers' and fans' poll projected them on top of this list, also thanks to the fact that our jury's vote was very fragmented.

---

2. THE SAINT JAMES SOCIETY

Heavy psych rockers The Saint James Society placed second by stacking up votes in all categories - their epic sound will please those seeking music that's tense and powerful, both sonically and emotionally.

---

3. GASHCAT

Alt folk collective GASHCAT - our latest record of the month - also did very well with the 3rd position, mostly earned because they were voted as the best band to be seletced through the open submissions.

---

Kudos also to Gary Clark Jr. who received the maximum amount of votes from our jury, which is always a good sign.

Here's the final chart, thanks to all those who helped us with this, we hope all our readers - including the bands in this list - will find a few new favorite local emerging bands in this list!
