Hometown: Washington DC
May 27, 2011
Not sure these all count as indie, but hopefully I won't be penalized. The Gourds, Rubblebucket, Beirut, Cat Power, Pistolera, The Damnations (first album especially; are they still around?), Freakwater, Swell Season, Yeasayer.
I've enjoyed checking out some of the DIY/underground spaces, like Subterranean A and the Red Door.
For a long time I wasn't going to hear local music much. That's changing now, and it will be great to have people to go with.
