    NOLA Indie Band Defeats itself in GRAMMY Nom Noms

    the_avacado3In an effort to be nominated for a nomination in the 57th GRAMMY Awards, NOLA based indie band The Shiz found itself with so many entries in its selected categories that it is the only band on the ballot who’s songs are so relevant that it will essentially end up defeating itself.
