We’ve already had a “where are you from” thread, and a couple “what kind of music do you like” threads.

This time around, post your favorite bands/artists from your hometown.

city: Minneapolis
artist: Har Mar Superstar

For me, it would definitely be this band, no doubt about it:

City: Winnipeg
Band: Bachman Turner Overdrive

hard to say if it’s “favorite” but definitely approve:

city: brooklyn
band: ninjasonik

“your frames are big”

City: New York (They’re from upstate though)
Band: Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams
This band is also really local for me because of the kind of thing in this video. They play an awesome dance set at this festival I go to, and they’ve also come to embody the festival.

City: Brookyln (Though they’re based in Atlanta now, they started here)
Band: Girlyman

Also: MGMT is from here too

City: Brooklyn
Band: MGMT

I also get bonus points for being at all three of those live shows I posted ;)

I was listening to the radio when I realized I forgot Sloan and Wintersleep.

- Kamikazee

- Juan Dela Cruz Band

… and here’s a video of an instrumental song performed by a famous performer named Wally Gonzales just to hook you guys a little (couldn’t find a better video, sorry):

City: San Francisco
Artist: Unwoman
She’s somewhat electronica, somewhat classical cellist/synth/piano/vocalist. And in honor of it being November 5th, I will post the home video she did covering the song from V For Vendetta.
