Hearty backslapping congrats to the members of Corto Maltese, who walked away victorious from the dustup that is the Deli Austin Artist of the Month Poll. You shall soon see their image boxed up above. But glory is brief: the new nominees are up, are in, are awaiting your sharp judgment. Have at it, people: Brothers and Sisters, International Waters, Ola Podrida (above), Pompeii and The Wooden Birds all cluster above right, late November suitors for your love. Vote vote vote!
At least two of these nominees are available soon for your live enjoyment via your earholes and eyeholes: Brothers & Sisters play Emo’s December 4th and Ola Podrida just announced a Dec. 11th date at the Mohawk.
