Not sure how to approach this one, but I'll give it a shot anyway.
I was looking at another post on here about the other bands that played with APHND the other night (wish I was there like everyone else) and how much they liked Pain Of Days. I looked around the net and did my best to find all these bands and give them a try. Then it dawned on me! As many people on here, as many musicians on here, and as many music lovers on here, I'm sure there are a TON of "local" bands that everyone knows of, and could possibly turn us on to.
The reason I'm touchy on this is because I'm not sure if the guys would want us pimping out friends that are in a band. I've been in the music scene here for 14 years now and I know plenty of bands. So, I'll go out on a limb and push on in my first comment. I'm always looking for new music and sometimes the best stuff is from artists that you would never have heard of if it wasn't for them opening for another band or some friend dragging you to a show. If it's a passable thread, than I will love to see what everyone can contribute.
