Best Boy Band

Go Periscope

Without a hint of irony, Joshua Frazier and Florin Merano of Go Periscope cite Dr. Luke, the producer responsible for hits by Katy Perry and Ke$ha, as a huge source of inspiration for their music. In a city chockablock with music snobs, it's rare to find a duo that plays unabashed pop. But Go Periscope's approach has worked: They became one of the only unsigned acts ever to top dance radio station C-89 FM's chart, their music has been featured on popular TV shows like The Hills and The Real World, and earlier this year Rolling Stone selected them to represent our city in a competition pitting unsigned bands against one another to grace its cover. Alas, they lost, but it's a mere speed bump on Frazier and Merano's smooth ride. ERIKA HOBART
