I wouldn't say you're being too harsh at all. After all, music conveys emotion, right? And if you can't share that bond with her, then it'd be difficult to pursue a further relationship with her. I know that for a fact. I could not date someone who didn't like indie music.

Maybe not being too harsh, but I spend a huge majority of my free time on music in some shape or form. So before I would even consider going out with someone, I make sure that they like at least some of the music I like (though that's a lot, it's easy to find common ground if you try). I wouldn't want to date a girl who won't go to concerts with me because that's what I do; I kinda feel like if it's that important how'd you get so far? At the same time, do what you want man... I wouldn't take advice from a bunch of people you don't really know on the internet about how your relationship should work.

I think its probably dependent on the situation or more specifically, the two people involved. My boyfriend doesn't enjoy the same types of music that I enjoy and although I tolerate it, I don't like the music that he listens to.However, every once in a while I will catch him singing along to one of the songs on a playlist of mine and it will simply melt my heart because it's so off beat for him to do that. Sometimes its good to be different, just make sure it is what you want and something that you can handle.

If its not, tell her to kick rocks.

As long as a girl can interest me I couldn't give two shits what she listens to, even if she were into the Decemberists. *shudders* I'm into independent music, but not like "Indie Rock".

The Decemberists are really more like folk pop, and they're fantastic.

Well I always thought they were a bit 'naah... not too interesting except for some songs'.
But that latest album, I love the subtle irish folkiness that's in it. It's almost like we can add a band to this list, sorted on heavyness, not on musical quality because I like them all
Dropkick murphy's -> Flogging Molly -> Pogues -> Decemberists.

Decemberists are pretty ok for that kinda indie whiny pop, as i've said.

I don't think it's whiny or indie or pop, actually.
Well, not anymore.
