Best Cover Band - 2007
Zoo Station makes attending actual u2 concerts seem like a rediculous amount of work and money. Sure, fans know that there's nothing like the real thing. Then again, when you factor in the convenience, price of a cover, and the great people involved, in many ways a Zoo Station show is even better than the real thing.
I started seeing Zoo in August 2002, seven months after they started, and have continued to see them roughly twice a month ever since. One hundred and eighteen (yes, 118) shows later, I have to say I'm surprised it took so long for SF Weekly to grant them this honor. I'm just down the line from your love...Zoo Station.... Yours U2ly, BRON-O
ZOO STATION is the best Tribute I have seen since Super Diamond! These guys are not to be missed. That they are up for up for Best of the Bay is no surprise at all. Don't miss this show!
Keep rocking guys!
What is the difference between "Best of" and "Readers Choice"? Dont the readers choose what they like best or do staff votes supercede readers votes? Maybe it needs to be re-named "Editors Choice Awards".
Just wondering if you have seen Smash-Up Derby, because they are truly an "original" cover band. Go see Smash-Up Derby before you vote next year. Because if you like U2, you will love S.U.D.'s "Girls just want to have Bloody Sunday" - U2 vs. Cyndi Lauper - Smash-Up Derby style. The BEST band in SF.
