Higher Ground rocks the Indie.

Holy crap! Look at the top-notch indie bands coming to South Burlington in the next few months — it's like a who's-who of the New Rock!

Higher Ground just added Canadian Invasion hotshots Wolf Parade to the schedule. That should be a fine show.

And let's not forget about my faves; electronic impressionists The Books on 5/15. I've been with these guys since the start. It's looking like I'll be doing a nice feature on them, as well. And to make things that much sweeter, our friend Greg Davis is opening.

Of course, there's the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah show on April 11. Those dudes are the DIY success story of the year. Even NPR is down.

I also hear rumors of an Editors show. The savvy euro-watchers among you will recognize these lads as the next Big Hype. My friend caught their Mercury Lounge (or was it Bowery?) set not to long ago, and said it was amazing. Their debut isn't out stateside yet, but will be by the time they hit VT. I have it, and can tell you that it's in the vein of Interpol. Let's cross our fingers.

Oh, and guitar geeks should be psyched to see Buckethead and the California Guitar Trio on deck...
