Well as far as nationally known bands from Columbus I'd say the New Bomb Turks are decent. I'm not too familiar with the other bands from around here though.

also a Vermonter, and not only are Phish not my favorite band, I cannot stand them!!


Only one local band I've heard and enjoyed.
Seth Yacovone Blues Band


in this area, I find music is either too punk/hardcore or too HIPPY!

Ah, but move away from the green desolate hills of Vermont and in some strange way, you will genuinely miss Trey and the boys.

I didn't become a big Phish fan until I moved half-way across the country, far, far away from the isolated boondocks of VT. There's just nothing like a dread-locked tour-rat yelling: "Phatty dank garlic grilled cheese! WTF, only a buck!" in the lot over a whiffin' Divided Sky solo to bring you right back to that Church Street state of mind.

Speaking of the crunchy musical underbelly of Burlington - when is Pure Pop going to wise up and stop charging an arm and a leg for their used discs? I swing by the shop every Christmas when I'm home, just for nostalgia's sake, and I swear every time I'm there, the used disc prices creep up higher.

I could go for some Al's Fries though. [homer]Mmmmm . . . a pint of Al's fries . . . . greeeeaaasssy . . . [/homer]

I don't think anything could make me miss Phish, that I know. However, Al's fries I could not be without!!!! And yes, Pure Pop continues it's price hikes. Nonetheless, still a shop with some personality. I think that Disc - Go - Round (now called Downtown Disc's) is a much better place for used goodness. Seeing as the guarantee everything and tend to have nearly everything.

The Why Store...these chumps opened for my band a few years back. Another case and point that talent is not required to "make it".
