Want to get to know a truly great indie artist? Look no further than The Antlers.

Stars Hits Detroit With an Indie Bang

Seeing Stars is the kind of wonderful experience you hope for every time you see a live show.

The show cemented in my mind their status as one of the most powerful and creative forces in independent rock today. If you haven’t heard Stars, you should listen to them. And if you haven’t seen them, you SHOULD, it is well worth the $17 admission fee (or whatever it was after Ticketmaster’s cut).

The Silversun Pickups are an indie band that doesn’t sound like your average indie band. They have bits of emocore, classic rock revitalism, and psychedelia blended in. Together they offer up a unique brand of rock and roll.
