Rubblebucket Orchestra

Runner-Up:
Hot Neon Magic

LOVE THAT DIRTY WATER

And the winner is (drum roll, please) . . . Rubblebucket Orchestra! From Boston! Huh? Granted, bandleader Alex Toth, vocalist Kalmia Traver and several other members of this ass-shakin’ 10-piece Afro-funk ensemble claim at least some Green Mountain roots — Traver is a Vermont native and, like Toth, a UVM grad. But it seems Daysies voters need a geography lesson. While it’s a wicked pissah to bestow this honor on one of the most talked-about regional acts of the year, Boston ain’t in Vermont. Tune in next year when the award goes to Chicago.
