Part VIII: The one where there’s indie rock instead of pucks

The eighth and final part of a series wherein I look at the indie rock bands (that I know about and like) from each playoff team and guess who would win each series if it were a battle of the bands.

You’re invited to criticize me and my music taste as sharply as you wish.  You’re also invited to recommend things to me.  This includes but is not limited to: suggesting different stuff to listen to, suggesting a different team to root for, suggesting a rock for me to crawl under, etc.

SERIES #8: Chicago v Calgary

Part VII: The one where there’s indie rock instead of pucks

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

Part VI: The one where there’s indie rock instead of pucks

Part six of an eight part series.  I’m looking at the indie rock bands from each playoff city and determining who would win each series if it depended upon those bands. 

Some big cities just don’t have any well-known indie rock bands, and I have learned the hard (but fun) way that many NHL cities fall into this category.  This matchup sort of fits under that umbrella.

SERIES #6 Detroit v Columbus
A city that invented a different genre of music against a city known best for college football.  Where’s the indie rock?

Part IV:  The one where there’s indie rock instead of pucks.

Part four in a series.  Once again, don’t bother reading if you don’t like ridiculousness and talk about indie rock.  This installment could get quite silly Or not.  Hold on to your hats.

Again, I’m comparing the indie rock scene of each NHL city and imagining that the games are played by indie rock bands rather than hockey players.

Series #4:  Pittsburgh v Philadelphia

Part III: The one where there’s indie rock instead of pucks

Part three of a series.  Again, the caveat:  Don’t pay attention to this if you can’t tolerate ridiculousness or talk of indie rock.

Another caveat.  I am extraordinarily biased here.  We’re talking about my team and my “local” music scene. 

SERIES #3: New Jersey v Carolina

For the purposes of this, I’m going to discuss bands hailing from the Raleigh MSA, which means no Whiskeytown, no Ryan Adams.  I’ll also admit that I can’t recall from memory more than one band from the New Jersey part of the New York-Newark MSA, but I’ll do my best.

Part II: The one where there’s indie rock instead of pucks

I was surprised that my idiotic post about indie rock went over fairly well, so I’ll continue with the series and move along to the Caps-Rangers series.  Again, I’ll offer the caveat.  If you don’t like ridiculous things or discussions about indie rock, read no further.

SERIES #2: Washington v New York Rangers
This is probably one of the most compelling series in terms of the battle of the indie rock bands.
