The voting members of the Texas Buzz have spoken, and we have the results.

For those unfamiliar with the showcase, Houston's 94.5 The Buzz gives the spotlight to local artists Sunday evenings beginning at 9 p.m., and the program is called The Texas Buzz. Concurrently, Scout Bar in Clear Lake hosts a free show, showcasing many of the artists who are getting airplay. The show is always free, and it happens every week.

If you ever find yourself with nothing to do on a Sunday night, we suggest you make a trip down to Scout Bar in Clear Lake for a night of entertainment. The drive really isn't that bad, especially in the evenings when traffic has cleared. And though we've mentioned it before, it warrants repeating: You can smoke inside.

New and old names fill this year's list of winners. The ever-present From Guts to Glory came away with a win, the hardworking metal enthusiasts in Born From Ruins did too (though we would hardly call them an indie band), and thelastplaceyoulook finished 2011 with a win as well. It's been quite the year (perhaps the best yet) for tlpyl who, in the past two months, have played Buzz Fest, opened for Chevelle and won a few of our own music awards, too.

"It's been pretty crazy," drummer Mikey Garcia said. "Hopefully next year will be even more crazy."

Here's a list of the winners.

Do these bands ever play inside the loop (I think I saw a flyer for lastplaceyoulook)? I feel like there's a big disconnect between the groups from the outlying areas and the big city groups.

Accessories do compliment the looks, and leather made stuffs are just indispensable in that. Numerous brands have excelled in that, and getting them all under a single address is definitely the sought after one. RightShopping.in makes it possible, and www.rightshopping.in/leather/i... is the link to visit.

Are you sure you can still smoke inside Scout Bar?  I went down there to see Immolation a couple months back and everybody went outside to smoke, even though it was rainy out.
