Question of the Week: What venue treats local bands the best?

"I call it 'music to sharpen my axe to': The Metal Show, Sunday nights from 10 p.m. to midnight on Xtreme Radio 92.3 FM and Bill Peters, Friday nights from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on WJCU-FM 88.7. (I know I picked two, but I live in a binary world.)"
-- Metal Bastard, a robot, Cleveland

"The Metal Show owns, just 'cause I fuckin' said so."
-- Kris D., guitarist, Hatecore Inc., Akron

"669 on WCSB-FM 89.3! Sweetass rules! I love when the guy from Norton's Furniture is on. Too funny."
-- Violet H., Lakewood

"None. I prefer to hear music in the morning, not annoying banter. Sorry, Rover."
-- The Abominable Snowman, Akron
