Week 6: The Alternates -are a Los Angeles based indie rock band.  They are an exciting band that I expect to hear much more from.  Front man, Spencer Livingston recently released a song called Occupy Wall Street.  Here's a track we like called The Modern Way.



Week 7: Ubiquity Machine - hail from Arlington, Virginia.  Back when I named them band of the week, I didn't know anything about them except that I really liked some of the music I was hearing.  They list their genre on Facebook as: AltIndiePopRockSkronkDeathPolkaDancercize which I love.  Here is their sublimely lovely international smash hit, A Beautiful Girl:
01 A Beautiful Girl by Ubiquity Machine

Week 8: Inner City Elegance - are Canadian with a connection to Brazil.  They are a honest to f**k ROCK band.  Don't believe me? Check out their latest video - just released November 13.  It's called Swearing Like a Sailor:
