Vote for Ola!

Local Band Ola Podrida was greeted with a nice surprise this morning! The band and Kensington residents are nominated for a Plug Independent Music Award for Best Americana Album (they're basically to music what the Independent Spirit Awards are to film). OP is up against some pretty heavy hitters and says they "no illusions of victory and am honestly just extremely happy to find our name alongside some of my favorite bands and songwriters". Oh so what! It's a public vote to determine the winner so we here at Kensington (Brooklyn) are shamelessly petitioning for every body's local vote for OP. Need something to do let us here at your neighborhood blog direct your attention:
