Hey Portlanders,

(full list of bands is on the right – If you’d like to learn more about our voting process, please check out the rules here.)

We are also ready to announce the winners of our Open Contest, which contributed to the nominations of artists for the poll. We’d like to thank all the artists who participated in our Open Contest. This was not an easy decision to make for The Deli writers, which is a testament to our amazing music scene. We are happy to announce that these Portland bands:

Parenthetical Girls
Mint Chicks
Bombs Into You
Dr. Helicopter

Have been selected to join our jurors’ list of nominees, and special congratulations to Housefire who were the overall winners of our Open Contest!
