Top 20 of 2010

For the past few weeks on our Tumblr, we’ve been counting down the Top 20 Roxy bands of 2010. We chose local bands that blown up over the past year and have played the Roxy at least once (in most cases more) in 2010. Our list started with a bit over 100 bands and kept narrowing it down until we reached our Top 20.

Here’s who we have so far:
20. Love & A .38
19. Cisco Adler and The Pigeons
18. 100 Monkeys
17. J*DaVeY
16. Audible Mainframe

15. Pour Habit
14. John West
13. Assemble the Skyline
12. Ke$ha
11. Hyper Crush

10. New Kingdom
9. Juke Kartel
8. Wicker
7. Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds
6. The Cataracs with Dev

Saturday Double Feature

We are lucky enough to have not one but TWO killer shows tonight (Saturday October 10)!! We start the party with our pals Hyper Crush and company…then continue on with the world class Grooveline Horns (Jason Mraz’s band). It’s going to be a busy night! Just wanted to give you all a heads up – tickets will be available via ticketmaster for both shows until the box office opens at 7:30pm. As always, feel free to tweet us @theroxy if you have any questions!

Hyper and Hank

TWO great shows going onsale today!! And both shows rank high as far as “fan favorites” go. We have no doubt that both of these shows will sell out super fast (as they always do) – so get them now! Please call us for tickets – or head over to ticketmaster (tickets go onsale at 11am).

Check out Hank III at another Roxy show!
