The Local Band​

Bands/Artists from somewhere close to your location. Bonus points if you’ve seen them live too!

edit: holy crap there's a bunch of strong contenders in there! I'm happy to take a shit place :p
edit2: why am I not allowed to give -2 lol. also: don't even have to listen to easily 1/3 of those, which I did not expect.

I learned new stuff about where bands are from!
Also, too many good contenders for the Eurovision round... Well, "good" contenders. Eurovision-good, not good-good. Butter churningly good so to speak.
This round, despite the challenging premise, is surprisingly difficult. I would rather not downvote anything, and at the same time, with 12 upvotes to distribute but only up to 2 per song, it's difficult to spend all the upvotes while having a distinction between the entries...
Good points from @DanRoM - can we bring three points maximum back from the next round onwards? And maybe minus two? Or do away with downvotes? @Misrabelle what do you think?
I like having downvotes in general, it's just that this round I hardly found anything really worth downvoting, yet I had to. Well, all part of the game. :)
Sorry, I've been quiet.
On top of all the usual workload with the buses and my parents (and the dog), I had to travel for an audit, of the largest company I've ever been engaged to audit, and I still have days of work left in completing that.
And on my return, I copped a head cold from hell, and am just now starting to feel a little better, though I have almost no energy still.

For the next round, I've changed voting as follows: Upvotes stay at 12. Max 3 updoots per song. Downvotes stay at 2, with a maximum of 2 per song.

So, 14 total votes for 15 songs, since we can't vote for our own.

If anyone has a burning passion to take over end-of-round spreadsheet duties, please, feel free.
I'm still up to my neck in bus maintenance schedules vs actually completed servicing records.

Round 2 is live now, for those who have notifications turned off...
It wasn't me!
No, I’m quite convinced of that as well… but I have a very strong suspicion. I did find a few similarly insane alternatives though. Just gotta see how obnoxious I want my choice to be 😐
I Am apparently a bottom. 👍🏻
I think I need higher education to understand Dr_Grip's comments. :ROFLMAO:

This time I got hit. Damn you @DaBoom :p
If we hit on the same song even, that would be amazing. I actually thought of something even more local to this after the first round, but stuck with my original idea (and was fast enough, clearly).
