Ears of Peef

So, here is a long overdue list of bands that I think everyone should know about. Some I saw while at the South By Southwest music festival this last spring (that’s how long I have been meaning to put this list together). Others are local bands that are worth checking out if they happen to come to your neighborhood. So…here it is complete with links to the band’s myspace page or website so you can listen for yourselves. Enjoy:
