On the surface, this “Best Of” package may seem pretty simple: It’s a list of winners and finalists in more than 115 categories, as voted on by Coachella Valley Independent readers, along with a handful of staff picks and photos—with a feature on the Best Local Band thrown in for good measure.

Welcome to the Best of Coachella Valley 2014-2015! Here’s how these results came to be: Between Aug. 29 and Oct. 3, Coachella Valley Independent readers voted at CVIndependent.com in an open ballot in the categories listed below. No finalists were selected in advance; readers had to write in their selections. We then took the top three to five finishers in each category and put them on a final-round ballot, which ran at CVIndependent.com from Oct. 8 to Nov. 7. Readers had to provide an email address, and were allowed to submit only one ballot in each round. We sent an email to each voter; if the email bounced, we did not count the ballot associated with that email address. Here are the results of this first-ever Coachella Valley Independent readers’ poll. Enjoy! Arts Best Art Gallery Coachella Valley Art Scene Runners up: 2. Gallery 446 3. Heather James Fine Art…
