The Ponys

I can't denied these long time friends of the Detroit music scene from Chicago[and on a personal note long time friends of mine] a spot on the festive 50, they sing to a major indie label and released on the best sounding garage rock album this year with "Turn the Lights Out" and not that they put on one hell of a live show proving the band out of Chicago is keeping what ever left of garage rock alive.

The members of the of The Elephant 6 Recording Company came out with a good concept album and was well received by the indie public may be all that buzz help because the band play there Detroit shows, there stage shows at the stick complex and they was one of the best live bands with there dramatic stage shows.

Bloc Party

O.K. i know most of Culture City don't like this band either as a hole or a live act or both, but i really like there second album "A Weekend in the City", it is a real good album not only that the song are great including "The Prayer" which is banging good tune, so if you did not listen to a "weekend in the city" give a album a good few good spin and you really like this.
