    Eau Claire has (had?) a pretty cool little venue when I lived in the area. House of Rock I think it was called.

    Entropy, have you heard a band called Entropy out of Spooner, Wisconsin? Actually, they are now called Entropy O.A.C. Good friends of mine, and a great "melodic metal" band.

    CS fell into a formula almost immediately, but man, it's an effective mix of melody and riffs.
    Yes. Yes. Yes. I love this band. Its feel good music, and they have a bunch of albums that are great all the way through. I've always been kind of surprised they weren't more popular because, to me, they kind of have a mainstream, not hard to appreciate sound.

    Re: Most under rated band of all time

    I love First Ave. I've probably caught 10 shows there over the years, but none of them topped The Hold Steady's "Homecoming" show on 4th of July, 2010.

But again, I'd rather pay $10 to drink beer in a bar with a Red Dirt band playing then not pay cover for a DJ.

    By no means are they my first choice for this thread, but I think some of their stuff (Specifically "Wonder What's Next" album) went under the radar. You can't tell me you wouldn't get pumped if Forfeit came on pregame at Jack. Although, I do concur their old stuff > new stuff.

    I am also pretty much one of those who can listen to any and every type of music so I'll throw some randos out there: Kakkmaddafakka (Sort of like Pumed Up Kicks on steroids if you like that style), Allen Stone (One soulful voice with personality), Pickwick (Great vocals and kind of a niche band), J. Roddy Walston & The Business (Blues and rock layered with some good old slide guitar), The Asteroids Galaxy Tour (Can't even describe them, just pure goodness), Rose Windows (Folk Rock that can borderline touch similarities of Wolfmother), and Vintage Trouble (Soulful voice mixed with bluesy rock).

    Re: Most under rated band of all time

    Continuing the First Ave. topic:

    Memorable headliners I saw there, alphabetically. If this list doesn’t reveal my age range, ugh ...

    • The BoDeans
    • Camper Van Beethoven
    • Cracker
    • Meat Puppets
    • Soul Asylum (3 times; one show may have initiated premature hearing loss)
    • Too Much Joy
    • Trip Shakespeare*

    *Twice. I think

    Also quite a few excellent gigs I witnessed at 7th Street Entry. I'll save that list for later.

    Re: Most under rated band of all time

    Great thread. Lots of good mentions.

    I liked this band for a long time. It's metal though so I understand if they aren't your thing.

    Cancer Bats.

    I gotta disagree with you here, listen to the albums of CCR, Jason Boland, Aaron Watson, Turnpike, Case Donahew, etc. and you'll hear. I love Red Dirt and Texas Country because it hearkens back to the days of Outlaw country. I am not saying I don't like it for the reasons you listed, may favorite nights are watching these bands play, I don't think any one does it better than Boland, but it is so much more than just party music. But there is also a lot of good party tunes to jam to.


    Speaking of the Troubadours, they are at Wooly's Tuesday night. Wish I could go, but an hour and a half both ways just won't make it happen. But, I will be headed down to see Cody Canada in May.

    I live in Eau Claire now it has one of the worst music scenes you could find for a town of 65K.

    I've got tickets, but the rest of my usual concert going group had to bail, so I'm probably bailing too. I saw them there last summer and it was one of the best shows I've seen.

    CCR and Jason Boland are definitely quality artists, but I have a hard time differentiating Casey Donahew from mainstream country anymore. I think it was the Doublewide Dream song that turned me off. Just way too "trucks, American flags, and country girls" for me. Might as well have been Luke Bryan or Eric Church.

    I can agree with that, should have Said Mickey and the Motorcars or Wade Bowen.
