Post some notable bands and singles from your area.

I'm currently in Durham, NC, and there's a bunch of local bands, what with 3 major colleges in the nearby. I assume there's every genre, but I know of mostly the indie/rock stuff.

The Future Kings of Nowhere - "10 Simple Murders"

Red Collar - "Used Guitars"

Schooner - "Pray for You to Die" is in the site's music player.

Nathan Asher and the Infantry - "Turn Up the Faders" is the first thing in the music player. I don't think these guys are playing anymore.

The Rosebuds - I think everything is pretty great. I guess "Get Up Get Out" is the most popular (disco!). They're actually successful, so you could have heard of them. This video is awesome. Totally creepy.

I usually listen to the NC State radio station - 88.1 WKNC. They play this during the local shows and lot of indie rock during most of the weekdays. Other times are more eclectic.

Opposite Day from around here is really good and noisy.

Their bassist is a pretty nice guy; I talked to him for a bit after they opened for Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

Brookline, NH.

The Yellow Team

I also went to high school everyone from the now very famous (even though they suck) Our Last Night. They played locally and at our school a lot before they got a record deal. In case anyone was wondering, they're all complete douchebags.

Three of the local Cleveland bands I proudly back. Since I moved to SoCal, there's a million bands out here that are doing great things but I do my best to support the hometown heroes.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Opposite Day is really awesome. I need to check out one of their CDs.
