It's that time of the year.
Seattle Gay News will reveal its picks for the "Best of Music 2011" in our new issue, out in print today and going online over the weekend. Our choices for the year's best albums, singles, live performances and hottest artists are included in this special feature.
Our "Best of Music 2011" spread also includes an exclusive interview with Young The Giant, a Southern California rock band who performed on the MTV VMAs telecast in September and will embark on a headlining tour in the winter/spring of 2012 with some dates already sold out. The group's drummer Francois Comtois tells us where he'll be for New Year's Eve, what he wants for Christmas, how he sizes up the past twelve months, and his personal thoughts on gay marriage.
Watch the video for Young The Giant's single "Cough Syrup" here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAsTlnjvetI&ob=av2
