In our first ever Best Midwestern tournament, hosts Greg Simpson and Scott Heisel pit 16 Midwest ska bands past and present against each other, bracket style! Listen to the episode and go to Challonge to see the brackets. Afterward, head to the Best Midwestern Facebook page or Twitter to vote! We also review two Chicago bands’ new albums, the long-awaited album by Droughts and the debut of the new indie rock supergroup What Gives.
Best Midwestern, focusing on music from the U.S. midwest, is created by long time Punknews contributor Greg Simpson and former Punknews editor and owner of Youth Conspiracy Records, Scott Heisel.
