In what was possibly the most glorious landslide victory of all time, Thievery Corporation was voted Best Local Band in Express Night Out’s 2011 reader’s poll. (Wale came in second; U.S. Royalty, third.)
Here’s what else the left-field, utterly unpredictable readers of Express Night Out deemed No. 1:
Best venue: 9:30 Club
Best sports bar and best gay bar: Nellie’s Sports Bar
Best amateur sports league: Happy Hour Kickball
Best film festival: Screen on the Green
Best cupcake: Georgetown Cupcake
Congratulations, Thievery Corporation, for being the Georgetown Cupcake of D.C. music.
