It's all true: The Trunk Space doesn't have the best sound system in town, it gets way too hot, and plenty of times the crowd smells like it needs a collective introduction to the deodorant aisle at Fry's. So why is it the best venue for local musicians? Simply because proprietors JRC and Steph Carrico sweat it out for local music, offering a place for local musicians to get started, hosting all-ages shows with an emphasis on spirit and community, and putting the experience of seeing passionate musicians before the comforts afforded by many other clubs. The music is wildly varied, likely to feature pop-punk from acts like Dogbreth, noise-punk from Vegetable, and twee-folk from Owl and Penny. Admission prices almost never go over $10, ensuring that the DIY ethos espoused by the bands fit those of the hardworking people behind the counter.Readers' Choice:

Too many good bands and good people I know have been turned down from even having the chance to perform at this place. Try having someone else besides hipster, close minded jackasses book your bands.

I hope we can all continue to acknowledge how fucking hard JRC and Steph work to keep the Trunk Space alive and Grand Avenue on the map. Great job you two, no one else could give up all that you two have to keep this place going - this is an award definitely deserved!
