I listen to a lot..just depends on the mood.  I'm getting tickets to go see them(brand new and MB) close out at PSU- pretty psyched. I just saw Brand New and Modest Mouse two weeks ago and Brand New put on one of the best shows I've seen in awhile, and I go to quite a bit of concerts. 

 

The band opening for those guys, the Front Bottoms, are pretty decent. Kinda a pop punk/indie vibe, though his voice isn't for everyone.

 

if you like those two, check out The Wonder Years.

You didn't miss much, I was actually pretty disappointed.

 

Don't know if you're a festival man or where you are geographically but if you like that type of stuff you should hit up riot fest or firefly. Both superb festivals for alternative/punkish music.

I saw Modest Mouse that one summer when Johnny Marr was in the band. They were pretty good.

Riot Fest looks amazing. In New England though.

I haven't heard a LOT of the Front Bottoms, but the song I know I like a LOT... reminds me a little of They Might Be Giants.  I dunno if it's indicative of their catalog, though...

That's a cool song. 

I know who They Might Be Giants are, but never got into them.

You should listen to Modern Baseball, sort of in the same vein.

Thats pretty much their whole catalog. The guys voice is hit or miss for some people, but I can see the comparison between TMBG. If you like that sound, I recommend Say Anything and Youblewit! . Similar lyrically and has a nice pop punk feel to it. Into it. Over it. is another band as well you may like.

I have a couple of "Say Anything" albums, but I see them as more "neo-punk," whereas the Front Bottoms or TMBG are more "alternative" or "indie."  Also tried to get into Portugal. The Man when a couple of their albums were $5 on Amazon, but it never really clicked for me.

Whoa... What happened to the Sigue Sigue Sputnik video I posted?

 

Did I forget to hit submit, or was it removed for some reason?

Eh, no biggie.  Just something that popped into my head from the early 80s--my college days.

I've seen Say Anything a couple times. Bummed I can't go to the Two Tongues tour.

This has been my favorite album of the first half of 2016.  I hear a lot of old-school and neo punk influences here, from Richard Hell to the Zero Boys to the Eels to Cage the Elephant to Best Coast, mixed with some psychedelic fuzz and dub effects at times.

One of the few hip hop artists I like...

 

 

Old school goo goo dolls before they went all acoustic and whiny on the bit 

 

 

Finally some early stuff from the offspring...
