Shindig! 2011 winners announced

The winners of Shindig! 2011 were announced last night. Three Vancouver bands competed in the final round, held as usual at the Railway Club. Judges picked Sleuth as their favourite, followed by the arty (they have a theremin!) dance-rock ensemble Tyranahorse. A teenage singer/songwriter, Norika Yew – performing under the name From Birch to Yew – came in third.
