Surely you know the drill by now: Each year, RFT Music recognizes the hard work and exceptional talent of St. Louis' local musicians with the RFT Music Awards. Our summer awards showcase -- to be held again this year in the Grove -- also provides local music lovers an opportunity to see dozens of these bands and musicians in action, with sponsorship by loads of local businesses.

So, it is that time again! We are enlisting your help in choosing the best bands in the city. It is our goal to provide a definitive list of the most talented acts in town, but we can't do it alone. Who are your favorites? Who in St. Louis do you think deserves more recognition? Post your picks in the comments below. (Please be sure to only choose from the acts in the St. Louis region, of course.)

The official ballot will be constructed by a panel of local experts, but in the meantime we need to make sure that all possibilities are considered. Note that this is not a popularity contest, and attempting to stuff the ballot at this stage in the game by getting all of your friends to comment with your band's name isn't going to do any good -- we watch for that stuff throughout all phases of this process.

If you would like to be considered as part of our expert panel, please let us know! If your suggestions are especially thoughtful or demonstrate a strong perspective on some genre or scene, we'd be happy to make you an official part of the nominating committee. Please include your e-mail address in your comment if you'd like to be considered.
