The Dodos are my new favorite band. They are quite cool. So is Death by Audio.
HEALTH, Genghis Tron, High Places, Telepathe, Invisible Conga People, Hard Bop DJs, Knitting Factory, New York
HEALTH is awesome, and I keep on putting Genghis Tron on the concert calendar because they are ALWAYS PLAYING somewhere nearby. I haven’t heard much of their stuff, but I love their name. Telepathe is also coolio.
