ROCKwell UnScene.com – http://www.ROCKwellUnScene.com – covered nearly 200 bands in 2012, focusing first on local up and coming bands, and sprinkling in pictures and features of larger national bands second. There are thousands of bands from all different genre’s based in Southern California, making it impossible to see, photo, and write about every band that calls Southern California home. However, nearly 200 bands is a great sample size and out of this sample, ROCKwell UnScene has named it’s “Best of 2012” in a variety of individual and band categories ranging from “Best New Band(s)” in L.A. (Mandy Lion), San Diego (Hi Def Dynamite), Inland Empire (Reveille 4 Radicals), and Orange County (Saints in Rehab) to “Best Female” & “Best Male Vocalists” in its current issue available now.
Every award plus 100’s of pictures and dozens of video’s can be seen at http://www.ROCKwellUnScene.com. All of the bands ROCKwell UnScene covered in 2012, in no particular order, include all of the following:
