you may have heard of them, so this is your reminder. otherwise, what have you been waiting for?
- embassy – a columbus, oh band who just finished their first full-length album. it’s been a long time coming and i happen to be pretty good friends with them, so maybe i’m biased. they’ve had some coverage on mtv2 and maybe mtvu.
- the city drive – i saw them with firescape and they are one of my new favorite bands. they rock pretty hard in concert and you should check them out.
- firescape – as mentioned above. they’re not that new and one of them is a guitarist from something corporate. good piano rock music and they play a great acoustic set.
- sloan – also known as the greatest american rock band from canada. power-pop is their forte and they are spectacular. they’re about 10 or 11 albums deep at this point and may be one of, if not, the best band ever.
