Hopefully by now you've enjoyed perusing our annual Best of St. Louis issue, which hit the stands a week ago today. We had some truly tough decisions to make this year, and we'll agonize over them in the coming weeks and months in this space. For now, though, we want to turn our attention to your picks for the best venues, bands and shows of the past twelve months. Compare below, and let us know what you would have picked in the comments.

As an unbiased observer, I'll say the RFT Staff picks are much better.

I'm going to agree with Matt Stuttler. Divine Sorrow? Really??

Man, I'm 100% with the RFT Staff picks versus the readers. It just seems the reader's picks rely a bit too much on the well known rather than the quality.
