Local bands? Waco Brothers are super entertaining. Funny and talented as hell.
Andrew Bird is just unbelievable in terms of original music.
Local H is pure power and wild abandon, you just never know what Scott Lucas is gonna do on the stage and Brian St. Clair is the personification of Animal, from the Muppets. All hair and arms, but wow, does he kill the drums!
Favorite music fest is the Hideout Block Party, every year its something new and always entertaining.
My favorite Non-local bands would have to be:
U2, Peter Gabriel and Guided by Voices for favorite performers.
Lots of musicians put out killer albums but ain't very good live, so its funny how the 'best live performers' aren't always in the Top 40! (LOL)
And Yes, Kiss used to rock the shizzle, but now, not so much.
