Support The Stranger

Okay, not really. (Music is just a really circuitous way of trying to get laid anyway, right?) But this week's announcement of the Stranger's first ever Genius Award for Music has briefly taken the coveted "most commented" spot above Savage Love. I can't remember the last time a music story did that—maybe this tear-jerker about Dave Segal losing his life's record collection? Maybe never.

Anyway, we want readers' suggestions on who deserves the no-strings-attached $5,000 prize and why—Alan Bishop/Sublime Frequencies? Sean Horton/Decibel Festival? Karl Blau? Someone else entirely? Lots of great suggestions so far; you can add yours to the list HERE. (And then you can go back to having sexy problems.)
