IT HAS ARRIVED! @tbtnewspaper's 2014 Ultimate Local Music Guide, on newsstands all weekend or digitally at tampabay.com/music. Join us, won't you, in our annual celebration of the Tampa Bay music scene. Congrats to this year's top 10 artists: @archaicinterest, @sonicgraffiti, @goodgraeff, @mountainholler, @permanentmakeupmusic, @therealclashot, Florida Night Heat, Fowler's Bluff, Nate Najar and Jesse Thelonious Vance, plus 100 or so additional local artists worth knowing. Countless kudos to the team that made it happen: @rmh730, @jimmygeurts, @jonnybfit, Carole Liparoto and Aaron Lepley/@funnybunnymusic for their artist profiles; @lsantanaphoto for his amazing portraits; @camcottrill for his spectacular cover artwork; @seandalypoplife for his @recordstoreday preview (and @shelly1717, @sarahmtyson and @brepuck for their accompanying #PlayTampaBay video; a slew of editors and designers, led by @msellen, who are too numerous (and non-Instagram-taggable) to name; @sasmall and @amber__mcdonald for bringing the pages of this issue to life with the augmented-reality app @layar; and @martigalloway for her overall indefatigable support, including creating this year's Ultimate Local Music Showcase, this Saturday at @thelocal662, with the help of the awesome @noclubs and @daddykoolrecords. Thanks to anyone who reads Soundcheck and tags your concert photos #tampabaylive. You're all part of why this months-consuming endeavor is still one of my favorite parts of this job. #tampabaylive #tampamusic #rsd14 #tbtonassignment
