Sometimes the best concert is played right in your own backyard.
Patch wants to know which local band is your favorite (and if you think you're the best, let us know that, too!). We want to know whose shows you just can't miss, whose songs you sing in your car, who can get you into a groove when that's just what you need.
We'll be taking nominations for local bands from Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Peñasquitos and 4S Ranch through July 9. Then we'll put up a Readers' Choice poll and have you vote for the best of the best.
Tell us your pick in the comments, and be sure to include a link to some of the band's music or their website.
