Farewell doesn't touch Wolverines, Giant, Hi-Rollers, The Bronzed Chorus, Marijuana Wolf, Embarassing Fruits, Blank Blank and oh it goes on and on. You live Greensboro? They write boring pop songs and I dont know what's more useless than that. People here in Wilson go crazy over them.

By the way the thread title is a little tongue in cheek. NC doesn't have the best scene in the world but it's a lot better than most people would know.

In the last 4 years I have spent significant time (at least a year) in Cincinnati, Wilmington, NC, and NYC. North Carolina has by far the most kickass music scene of any of them. NYC has lots to offer, but NC has some sick newer bands, including one of my current favorites, The Avett Brothers. Cincinnati, btw, has a terrible scene. Lots of badly performed emo, metal and the like. A few gems, like Peter Adams, who I think released a new album recently which I haven't gotten, but mostly not so good

I like The Avett Brothers a lot, they write wonderful songs but their ticket prices are ridiculous.

Ah. I love Des Ark. And yes, North Carolina, for the moment anyway, is way cool than wherever I live.

Boston music scene is disappointing these days, which is sad considering it's history.

Yeah, it's been quite a while since I lived there and it seems like things have really gone downhill musically. There were great bands there in the 80s and 90s.

I've only seen them live once it was a full band set at Bull City Headquarters with Hammer No More the Fingers and Yardwork. My favorite songs are Last Bastion of Worthlessness (the banjo one above), If By *** You Mean Totally ****ing Awesome then Yea I guess it's pretty ***, and Yes Sir Yes Way. Just check it out for yourselves.

You can listen to all of Loose Lips Sink Ships on Last.fm

And the second wxdu radio session here
Sorry, no.

Good music...but it doesn't really change NC.
