Sorry, it seems I can't post videos properly.

Default Your Favorite Local Bands Thread

I thought it would be cool to have a thread dedicated to bands new or old, on the cusp of breaking through or flying lightyears under the radar, from poster's hometowns. Just drop some names, some vids, a description, whatever. It'll be cool, I promise. Tell your friends! I've tried this on other music forums and it's never taken root, I'm hoping it's not a sign because it seems like a real rad idea. Hopefully this one will flourish!

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Scenes from SF, Berkley, Oakland, and some south bay cities (IE San Diego) are kinda all mixed together over here. As a fan mainly of punk rock, my list is somewhat unvaried. Here's some bands that kick ass from my area:

Big Kids: post-hardcoreish, mathy, emoish, alt-rockish, pretty heavy and sick from Oakland.


Summer Vacation: lo-fi as **** emo ala Algernon Cadwallader, Snowing... nothing new but still good. They are from Oakland.


Tony Molina: This guy's really awesome. I saw him open for Joyce Manor a while ago and was immediately hooked. (SUPER) short songs, fuzzy, riff-y, heavy guitars with awesome corny solos and laid back 90's slacker-indie vocals. He has some intense hc projects too but they're not as good. If you like Dinosaur Jr. YOU MUST CHECK HIM OUT!!! Dissed and Dismissed is one of my favorite records of this year! He's got a new EP coming out Oct 2013, too! He's from SF. He has better songs but this is the only one on youtube, :/.


Shannon and The Clams: Lo-fi, reverb-laden homage to obscure 40s-60s pop. Shannon's (ex-Hunx and his Punx) a babe and a real great singer. From Oakland.


Wild Moth: They just released a new album that's really good. They also have one (or two?) EPs. The S/T EP I have is good but 'OVER, AGAIN' is pretty fantastic. They cover a lot of ground, some songs are shoegaze-y, some songs are gloomy post-punk-y, some are hardcore-ish. They don't really commit to anything in particular and the result is a pretty unique sound. Sf...


FIDLAR: Stands for "**** it dog, life's a risk." They're from LA, which... meh... but their music (mostly) is pretty good. Garagey punk with some skate punk ties. Cheap Beer is arguably one of the best drinking songs in punk and the music video kicks ass. I! DRINK! CHEAP! BEER! SO! WHAT! ****! YOU!


Jawbreaker: 'nuff said, except that to be fair they did have some roots in New York(?)

This song seems underrated compared to staples of their discography.




Why can't I swear? Censorship, on a website about art?!

RENO

This Computer Kills plays highly technical screamo/hardcore punk, their only album is one of my favorites.


Folky, bluegrassy, kinda punky, DIY music from Last To Leave.


7 Seconds are from Reno.


So are Fall Silent.


And Iron Lung.


...And Gehenna


Blackened thrash metal that I don't particularly enjoy from Blasphemous Creation.


Awesome stuff from Elephant Rifle.


Went to high school with these guys, think they're kind of lame.


Some bros of mine.


More bros.


Even more bros.

I guess I'll count people that were born in my town too, because it really doesn't have much of a music scene. (It doesn't have one at all really)

Jenny Owen Youngs

Jenny Owen Youngs: YOUR APARTMENT - YouTube

Probably the most well known artist born in my town, really good folk-pop. She was just on the revival tour this past spring.

Tawny Peaks

Tawny Peaks - Ambiguity - YouTube

Twinkly emo.

Daido Loori

Daido Loori - Sacred Ground - YouTube

Screamo.

Echo Movement are a really good group of chill dudes from my area. They've been around for awhile too.

Perhaps I was unclear? By local I just meant bands that were/are FROM your city/area/off the grid commune/wherever you sleep at night/etc. And hey, who says every band wants the entire world to hear their music? And what makes such a band any less intelligent than one that does?

Might just be me but, Mondo, a lot of your videos aren't showin up . I have a hard time with metal but Gehenna seem pretty cool, the vocals kinda had me laughin a bit though. I had no idea 7 Seconds were from Reno, for some reason I always associated them with 80s east coast straight edge HC. Shows you what I know. Is it strange that I know who Jenny Owens is because my mom's girlfriend is a huge fan? I've been getting into some more acoustic stuff lately, did enjoy! And I've been meaning to up my reggae collection, sounds like another addition with Echo Movement.

I grew up in a town of 60 people. My closest music scene was at least a few hours away, Minneapolis. This is my favorite band from the Twin Cities.

Some buddies of mine that play all over the Midwest, and Daytona Bike week each year:

Quote:
Convoy is a Chicago based band that plays music that can best be described as "Swamp Rock". Formed in the fall of 2009. Convoy plays primarily rock/southern metal originals. Some of their musical influences include: Clutch, Corrosion of Conformity, Pantera, and Black Label Society.
Some early stuff:


Convoy - I Want Some - YouTube

Their latest stuff, which got quite a few notches better:
Convoy Music, Lyrics, Songs, and Videos

Here's the singer (holding the beer) cheering us on when I was in Koncrete Pillo. Lots more Tatts, and much longer hair now days:



They put on some killer shows. Last I saw them they opened for Pat Travers.
