Mutts are The Deli Chicago's Emerging Artist of the Year!





Mutts are The Deli Chicago's Emerging Artist of the Year!

Deli Readers,

After a month and a half long painstaking process, we finally have the overall results of The Deli's Best of Chicago 2011 Poll for Emerging Artists! Unlike in NYC, where Caveman was a clear winner with 5 jurors vote, scores are very close this year in our Chicago poll, due to the fact that our jury's vote was extremely fragmented.

1. MUTTS

Congrats to heavy rockers Mutts, who won the overall competition in virtue of points accumulated through the Open Submissions, the Fans Poll and the Jurors votes (see below - they were picked as 2nd and 3rd choice by 2 jurors, and therefore were assigned 2 + 1 points in the jurors column).

---

2. DRIFTLESS PONY CLUB
Driftless Pony Club grabbed 2nd place thanks to the 3 points assigned to them because of their win in the Fans Poll, plus one extra point earned through the Open Submission contest.


---

3. SHARPLESS
Winners of the Open Submission contest - which earned them 3 potins - Sharpless also stacked up 517 fans votes, which granted them 3rd position in the overall poll. These indie rockers blend crooked melodies a la Modest Mouse with uplifting and dense choruses - definitely an emerging Chicago band worth checking out.

Here's the final chart of The Deli Chicago's Year End Poll for Emerging Artists - thank you all for spreading the word!
