Like, say, alt-rock bands in the late 1990s, it’s increasingly hard to keep track of all the jam & indie bands popping up on the underground rock scene these days. In fact, being a New Yorker with an attentive eye, I’ve found that the easiest way to document a band’s rise is by paying careful attention to the promotional posters plastered to the construction sites I pass on my way to work everyday. As the seasons change, new faces arrive, grow in size and, one Sunday night without explanation, disappear before I digest my Monday morning coffee.
Hopefully, these signs will have a bit longer staying power
