Get it!! I love "Answering Bell." Ryan Adams is a little weird, though. There's a really funny interview with him at
http://nme.com/news/101150.htm that you should listen to. I would love to see him live--he seems a little unpredictable, which would be fun.

The Death and Dismemberment show was terrific, wasn't it? I wish Death Cab had played first (they were great, but a bit of a letdown after Dismemberment's more rocking set). I'm also something of a Modest Mouse fan, thought I think The Moon... is kind of overrated (though "Lives" is a bloody good song)

Basstrap, I encourage your move into the indie world... try www.pitchforkmedia.com for the best reviews of this stuff out there.

mug, the vocalist of D-Plan got on my nerves a bit by the end and Death Cab finished their set with a blistering performance. The only song I knew before going was Time Bomb and that was awesome live. I thought the D-Plan was more original, but based purely on the sound I prefer Death Cab.

No, I actually agree with you: I like Death Cab much better than Dismemberment, but I just found it strange that they played in the order they did...I think it would have been more fitting had Death Cab played first.

By the way, I'm assuming you've only heard Change by Dismemberment (since you only recognized Time Bomb). If this is the case, get Emergency & I. It's excellent, and better than their most recent effort in my opinion. If you've got audiogalaxy download The City, the best song on there.

They're all indie over there, and I think I may start delving into that world. It opens up countless more amazing bands to listen to!

Mostly through the music magazines as well as music forums on the net, like rollingstone.com. I don't really consciously try to hear as many new bands/artists as possible; it's all on whatever catches my eye principle.
