Bandcamp: 10 Houston Bands You Should Hear Right Now
Above everything else, my favorite Web site for finding and listening to local music is Bandcamp. Facebook is too distracting, ReverbNation is ugly, and the new MySpace isn't quite ready; many of the good bands left the site altogether long ago.
I love searching Bandcamp's "Houston" tag on Bandcamp to see who is working on stuff and putting out their musical shingle in town. Yeah, a lot of these folks are barking up the wrong tree and should stick to listening to music instead of making it, but at least they are trying and have the balls to put something up for all to hear.
Here are few of my favorite local bands that I have been enjoying on Bandcamp that I want you to know about too. I have included their own descriptions of their sounds where applicable. I wish more of these guys would play shows, or at least tell more people about the shows they are playing.
Oh, but that's my job, right?
