    Re: Local Bands

    I like what I've heard of the Seedy Seeds. I also *really* like the song Garden by the Lions Rampant, but that's the only song I know of theirs. It doesn't even really seem like something I'd like normally (i.e., I might hate the rest of their catalogue), but that song in particular is just straight-up, straight-forward solid rock, done well. With horns.

    Some friends of mine have played shows with the Pomegranates. I thought they were ok. Great band name though.

    Re: Local Bands

    Are we doing local anywhere? This is my favorite Pittsburgh band, New Shouts, whom I can't really pimp any harder. Video below is their newest song, which is extremely new wavey -- I like it a lot, but not really representative of their previous work. They're very versatile and exploratory which is one of the things i like about them. What they do best, IMHO, is blue-eyed soul (Reins to Your Heart, Save Me).

    New Shouts - Gazes in the Dark - YouTube

    They're playing at the Brillobox tonight, for all of you dozens of Pittsburghers on the board.

    He also forgot Blitzen Trapper, Portugal The Man, Wild Flag, Spoon and The Corin Tucker Band but he's wrong about Built To Spill, they're based in Boise.

    Stay Calm (Claudia Meza, formerly of Explode into Colors and Zac Pennington of The Parenthetical Girls) is a great Portland band right now.

    Jackie-O-(cursewords), Valet, White Rainbow also make for a pretty great experimental scene in the city.

    R.I.P. Pure Country Gold.

    Bloomington's got a rather outsized scene for its size. Apache Dropout is quite good. And then all the Secretly Canadian/Jagjaguwar bands that swing through town regularly, namely The War on Drugs (who must keep an apartment in town).

    Is there still a big folk punk scene in Bloomington?

    Yeah quite a lot of those bands have relocated, many don't actually show up
    More than say wilco but they live here now and I thought Built to Spill had also relocated here, maybe just Doug M?

    In any case you forgot The Thermals, one of my favorite bands from the 00s...

    Yep. Plan-It-X Records is still based here in town. Just had their annual festival six or so weeks ago.
