Your 2009 Ultimate Local Band: Triptico




Congratulations are in order for the Latin-jazz-jam-rock combo Triptico, who have been voted tbt*'s 2009 Ultimate Local Band by you, our dear Soundcheck readers. 

Brothers Gabriel and Alejandro Valdiva and their cohort James Farrell racked up 1,804 votes over the past month, breezing past Bluegrass Parlor Band (1,232) and Geri X. (1,165).

But don't just congratulate them here -- congratulate them in person at Saturday's tbt* Ultimate Music Showcase, featuring Triptico; Geri X.; Have Gun, Will Travel; Will Quinlan and the Diviners; Tailgunner Joe and the Earls of Slander and the Beauvilles. The show is 6 p.m. to midnight at Skipper's Smokehouse in Tampa. Tickets are $5 advance, $10 at the door; you can get them here. Check out the player on the right to listen to music by all these artists.

We Soundcheck bloggers and tbt* writers will be there, so if you're a local artist, come by, introduce yourself, hand us a demo, pass us some flyers, all that great stuff. We look forward to meeting you.
