The Anniversary, Hey Mercedes, Pedro the Lion, Onelinedrawing, Far, New End Original, PJ Harvey, Weakerthans, Amanda Rogers, Breaking Pangaea, Denali, Get Up Kids,
Juno, Motion City Soundtrack, Radiohead, Rainer Maria, Rilo Kiley, The Notwist....

Indie can go as far as to say Independent bands and Independent Labels....which in that case, there's a million of them.....or Indie in terms of the sound or the "label" we attach to their style of music.

^What are you talking about? A lot of those bands are considered indie.

TV on the radio is great. Hey, good enough to be posted twice on one list. And, Wilco *wets 'self*, I might go see them on the 21st (but Deerhoof plays on the same day so I'll be in a dilly of a pickle).
