Posted by: Frank Giaramita (11/12/05)
Staff recommendations for the week (Click 'Read More' to see all of them):

Frank: I recommended some really awesome bands, along with our forum users Louise (liethrulipgloss), Felicia (the_narrator), and Katie (hickpuff).

Brandon H.: I went to the Fall Out Boy show last night so all I can really say is listen to Fall Out Boy and Panic At The Disco.

Gabe: Hot sex, hot rex. Brian (InaGreendase) helped me out this week.

Darren: My recommendations are right here.

Rohan: This week, George of Valencia, Loren from Lydia, and Evan from sceneupdates.com (for South African bands) joined me for recommendations. Check out our picks right here.

Drew: I had a bunch of cool people from the forum chip in this week, check that ish out here!

Brandon A.: It's very simple this week. I recommend drinking Red Bull and listening to The Specials.

Garett: New music coming soon from Cavil at Rest (and you might hear it here first). Incredible indie pop-rock band.

Caleb: You should all go listen to The Takeover UK and The Fold.

I'll go ahead and recommend Cassino again. Hadn't listened to the demos for a few weeks, but am so glad I listened again. Fucking genius.

khonnor: i can't think of any comparisons, but think quiet-indie type stuff? he's some 17 year old kid (probably 18 by now) and it's pretty good.

kind of like spitting: maybe i'm biased because they're my favorite band, but i got the new cd "in the red" this past week and it's magnificent. definitely check it, or anything by them, out if you haven't yet.

all-time quarterback: ben gibbard's (death cab/postal service) old band. side-band? whatever. either way, i've been listening to it a lot.

of montreal: they're fun. like the shins/the decemberists fun type of fun. i can't get enough.

others worth mentioning:
belle and sebastian
tilly and the wall
les savy fav

and chai. i recommend chai. it's tea that tastes like christmas!

I recommend Youth Group for a nice change of pace. Kudos to Cassino. Good stuff. Though I do miss Northstar terribly.

i loved them live... but i was just so stoked to see them that i could be biased. Its suprising with all of the techno beats and shit they have in their record, that they could still pull it off as well as they did. It was more rock and roll then any techno. I still really enjoyed it thouroughly, and would go back in a heatbeat. Ultimatly the lead singer stole the show... he was super energetic and his voice is absolutly flawless!!

which reminds me........ academy is and panic!??? any word on the X-box tour or when/where they're playing??
