Exclamation Bands/Musicians From The Area You Live In?

what are some awesome bands from around the area that you currently live in (or somewhere you'd call home)

I live near Athens, Georgia and we've contributed some great bands such as

REM
The B52's
The Whigs
Reptar
Widespread Panic (I don't care for them though)
Danger Mouse (who produced albums for bands such as gorillaz, the black keys, and gnarls barkley)
Modern Skirts
Neutral Milk Hotel
Far From California (of course haha)

plus Bobby Prince the guy who created the soundtracks and noise effects for games such as Wolfenstein and DOOM

Athens has also produced Of Montreal. And probably half of the Elephant 6 roster.

I added to your list because there isn't a single remarkable artist from my area.

I could name a few others, but these are what I came up with immediately. Not a bad roster, if you ask me.

Well I'm from Toronto so there are a lot of great bands and singers from the whole area. Rush, Barenaked Ladies, Blue Rodeo, The Band (except for Levon Helm of course)... lots of great local bands too.
