I wish I knew how to discover local bands. There are a few that play at bars but I’m not old enough to get in. I do hear that Beatles used to be a local band popular in Liverpool before they made it big.posted over 5 years ago
loll none of the local bands in my middle-class suburb are any good—just a lot of high school/cc garage bands. Wish I lived in Seattle :Pposted over 5 years ago

Feel like all my local bands are either rap groups or screamo. Not exactly into either. Although I heard this really cute guy my sister knows is in a local punk band… I definitely need to check them out ;) Lolposted over 5 years ago

My boyfriend’s band from Atlanta GA, The Booze, echoes late 60s-early 70s Rolling Stones but with lots of gritty edge and raw energy. If you’re tired of the same ol’ electropop and autotune, this is the hope and REAL TALENT our generation has been looking for to save music. My guy is the singer; be sure to click on their Media link for some excellent videos; you can’t beat this!
I think they’re a greatly under-appreciated group. The vocalist has this incredibly deep voice that just sets my nerve ends all atingle. They remind me of a darker 69 Eyes.
I thought I would come check out this thread and then started laughing when I saw the second and third response. I’m from Seattle and was thinking about how lucky I am to have so many great local bands!
Blue Scholars are great, like didgeridoo mentioned. A Leaf is from Tacoma and they’re one of my favorite bands right now! Check out What What Now, Band of Horses, and Fleet Foxes (you’ve probably heard of the last 2). Acceptance is another great band from Seattle. They broke up a few years ago, but they’re still worth checking out!posted almost 5 years ago
I like Amberline (http://www.amberline-uk.co.uk).
They’re like full on mid 00s emo. Though it really annoys me how the vocalist sings in an American accent. You’re from Basingstoke! Just stop.posted almost 5 years ago
Indianapolis has a pretty good underground band scene.
I really can’t think of any current ones off the top of my head, though.
