Red and Black Hockey

Part seven of an eight part series. I’m evaluating the indie rock bands from each playoff city and determining the result of each playoff series if it were a battle of the bands.
Again. This is meant to be fun. I hope that when I am remiss in omitting a band, I will be called out. I hope that somewhere along the line I can be turned on to something I don’t know about. This isn’t about the actual hockey. This is about the indie rock.
SERIES #7: Vancouver v St. Louis
This is a fun one
Vancouver has a bunch of big guns here. My favorite of the lot is The New Pornographers. Since they have them, they also have Neko Case and Destroyer and Zumpano and Immaculate Machine. They also have Cub and Mecca Normal. They share Young Galaxy with Montréal. And let’s not forget that they get fictional band Catwalk from the smash TV series of the same name. Maybe it wasn’t a smash. Anyone else remember it? Neve Campbell (with whom I share a birthday) was in that. When she used to be hot. That’s the one that pushes them over the top,
Their combatant in this series is St. Louis. Unfortunately, there isn’t much going on (that I know of) in St. Louis. They have Son Volt and Uncle Tupelo. While they have those two, they DO NOT have Wilco, which is important. They belong to Chicago.
This isn’s much of a competition. Vancouver takes it easily.
