Anybody who really knows me, knows that I'm a huge music fan. I enjoy all different genres, but alternative, and rock would have to be my favorite. I really like to catch bands that are on their way up, and I like some stuff that most people haven't heard of. Right now, I'm listening to a band out of Kansas City called Vedera (formerly Veda). Awesome! Think Paramore, only with more feeling.
My favorite band at the moment is The Format, but seeing how they just broke up in February, I need to find a new one. A buddy (yes you Travis) has tried to turn me on to a band out of St. Louis called Ludo. (They have a song called Topeka). They're good, but not favorite band material. Of course I like the standard mainstream Punk/Pop/Rock acts: Dashboard, John Mayer, 30 Seconds, Foo Fighters, Hoobastank, Jimmy Eat World, MCR, Panic, FOB, Snow Patrol, et. al.
But I'm looking for someone more along the lines of slightly obscure, i.e.: Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap, Amos Lee, Iron and Wine, etc. So I'm asking everybody who their favorite band/artist/group/act is to try and help turn me on to some new stuff. Any genre is welcome, but if anybody suggests the Stones or Nickleback, my head will explode.
