I kind of like Weird War after seeing them open for the Walkmen.  Of course, that could just be in comparison to their TERRIBLE set...

I just picked up their CD at Joe's.  Nice stuff.  They don't play out a lot though - do they?

they are all in other bands, local bands, but still, I imagine it is hard to schedule shows

i'm in agreement with ikarus here. the hidden hand are awesome, and canyon was really onto something (but now that brandon butler's out of the band, it ain't gonna be the same).
 
 carrion kicked ass, but they broke up a couple of months ago.
 
 dead meadow are probably my favorite local band, followed by:
 
 thee snuff project
 (sounds of) kaleidoscope
 fugazi
 wooly mammoth
 the apes
 mikroknytes
 orthrelm
