Parklife DC will honor DC bands and venues with our send annual Thrushie Awards program, named for our mascot, DC’s own state bird — the Wood Thrush. As always, our Thrushie Awards are inspired by our mission to review live music concerts and spotlight bands and concert halls covered by Parklife DC.

Voting for Thrushies runs through Friday, Dec. 11 at midnight, and you get to vote for your favorite DC band or venue.

In the past, we have also solicited votes for Best Music Festival, but we have paused that category this year as the novel coronavirus forced the cancellation of our favorite DC-area music festivals in 2020.

Our poll focuses local bands from our coverage and interviews from the past year and local music venues where we reviewed shows or promoted livestreams.

Write-in candidates are welcome!

Vote for your favorites!

Poll: Who Is the Best Local Band in DC?

Welcome to the 2018 Thrushie Awards! Parklife DC will name the best local band of the year with your input. Vote for the best DC band now through Dec. 1.

Now, we fully realize that there will be a lot of strong opinions about our list, and we readily confess that we could review even more local bands next year. But for now, our poll is limited to bands reviewed by Parklife DC in the last year. As this is our inaugural year for the Thrushie Awards, we sought to keep this list short.
