    alright, heres the deal. post bands who are A)amazing or at least marginally badass, B)somewhat obscure/poorly promoted and C) are from your area ("area" being a loose term). my contribution.....

    -thunderlip: badass. thats it. these guys were only playing to 20 or 30 people but everyone got their pants rocked off that night. i wouldnt say they are technically amazing by any means and i have yet to hear their stuff actually recorded but the live show was a fucking stunner.
    Thunderlip

    -immortal avenger: ive lived here for two years and never heard anything about these guys but recently got to see them at a darkest hour show and honestly, i enjoyed immortal avenger just as much dh. im white and grew up in the 80's so i guess i have to love a really amazing metal throwback band by default.....if thats not your thing though you may want to skip over it.
    Immortal Avenger

    odds of this sinking to the bottom with a quickness: very high

    The Triggerhappy Pacifists. They are great live (they sound better live than on their demo). They got In the top 10 on VH1's Top Unsigned Bands thing.

    A Summary Execution Local Twin Cities metal band. One of my all time favorite local bands. They "broke up" about a year ago but played their last show about 4 or 5 months ago. One of the best live shows i've ever been to. Some people might call it metalcore, but it has maybe one breakdown on the whole cd. More just mildly techy metal. Give it a listen if you like anything with screaming type vocals.

    The Critic Punk/screamo band from New Hampshire. I'm not normally one to like anything that you could possibly label screamo, but there's something about this band that makes them great. Maybe it's that the vocalist doesn't sound like a little girl being raped, or maybe it's that they actually play good music. I'm not really sure. Give it a listen even if you wouldn't normally like anything that could possibly be labeled screamo.

    Larry Bird Another new hampshire band. This time it's softer. Indie/Rock/i hate labeling music. Listen to the second song on there to get an idea of what most of their stuff sounds like. I wouldn't say they're amazing by any means, but it's enjoyable music

    Regret Minneapolis hardcore. In a scene that is predominated by horrible metalcore bands, these guys are playing some good, pissed off hardcore. They have a sound pretty similar to Hope Conspiracy.


    If you like any of these bands, i have more of their music that i could send you (except for Regret). I'll post some more bands later.

    I'll look for their purevolume sites or something. Let me know if you want more of the critic.

    This is fucking horrible music.

    I could shit on a guitar and dick slap a snare drum and it would come out better than this.

    The Bananas!!! - A super good band from Sacramento Ca that play a lot in the bay area. Definitely my favorite local band. They just play reallllly good energetic melodic punk rock and roll. i really hope that people can appreciate this as much as i do!

    Hickey - Hickey was surely one of the best punk bands to come out of the bay area. They played really great just straight up punk rock. You guys should really listen to this band man. They dont have a website so heres some good songs.
