    Local Bands

    I've been on a kick of listening to local Iowa bands, and was wondering what you guys have for a good band to see/listen to from the area. Currently, I've been listening to Destrophy, Mindrite, Di-Fi (Omaha), Murder by Death (Indianapolis), and Heartset Self Destruct (Chicago).

    There's another band from the DSM area that I can't think of right now that is good as well. What local/up-and-coming bands are on your radars?

    Re: Local Bands

    The Envy Corps, Mumford's, and Radio Moscow are my top central Iowa bands, although I haven't been following the scene too closely in the last few years.

    The Pimps - Rockford, IL

    Leftwich - Davenport
    Wicked Liz and the Belly Swirls - Davenport

    They've all been around awhile, but they all rock in my opinion.

    Last I'd heard the drummer was li.ving in Iowa City and it was tough for everyone to get together and play around Des Moines. Sounds like they had/were going to disband. Some of the guys from the Go Easy have been playing as Pho and with the Scott Larson Band.

    They were a freaking awesome party/bar band though.

    Envy Corps is one that I've heard before. Really like their sound. They remind me of a mix between Modest Mouse and Radiohead. Seems like a really experimental band.

    I went to see The Envy Corps last year at the M-Shop. They really put on a good show. They have a cool sound..I'd recommend them
