We’re not really so vain, but we are currently in the running for “Best Rock Band”
in two different competitions.
First, we are finalists in the Boston Phoenix Best of 2009 Poll for “Best Rock Band,” so head on over and vote for us. The process is as follows:
You go here: http://web.archive.org/web/20090321061227/http://thephoenix.com:80/theBest/Boston/vote/RockBand/
…select The Motion Sick and hit submit. Then, you must hit “skip to finish” and
enter a name and e-mail address.
We have some seriously tough competition: Dear Leader, Hallelujah the Hills, Televandals,
and Wild Light!
Second, we have been selected to participate in the WBCN’s 31st Annual Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble. The Rumble is the longest running battle of the bands in the country. Each year, 24 of the best Boston bands are selected to fight it out in a series of elimination shows in the month of April. Past participants have been great bands including: Mission of Burma, The Lemonheads, Morphine, Letters to Cleo, ‘Til Tuesday, Dresden Dolls, The Sheila Divine, and Freezepop. Most of them actually lost the competition, often in the first round! The show dates and times will be announced on Sunday on Boston Emissions.
In case you missed the incredibly fun show at Church last Friday, you can see a few
photos and feel great remorse.
