The only alt/Indie band even close to that genre that I saw this year was The Hives and it was definitely one of the best concerts i've ever been too

No bands come here..

the WORST is BLOC PARTY. kill them. not to mention the lead singer is a dirty trick ass hoe. sounds white, dresses white, but clearly isnt. im down with other races but seems liek he is trying to be something he isnt. and of course, they suck **** live.

Uh yeah but they were ace live at V fest in the summer, really put on a good show I thought, just general light-heartedness

Worst were the Zutons.

Hmmm I think that...... Bloc Party are awesome, and you have to give Kaisers credit because they have gotten so big with music that REALLY isn't that good.

If the Darkness did a gig this year, then I'm sure it was probably **** .... No bands really stick out as being exceptionally crap

edit - deleted what I had. I was in a really pissed off mood. Sorry. But yeah, I haven't really caught any shows around here so I can't really say. Bloc Party would be great to see in my opinion.

i saw the live stream of the KROQ Acoustic Christmas...that was enough to see they were poor live. the vocals just drained ANY semblance of life from the show.

Nice to see they're getting some notice. Was a nice little list you had there, but I had to pick out the Apartment because I saw them probably a couple of years ago now with Cherryfalls and they'll always hold a little place in my heart (as they were the reason for starting the first 'Brits' thread on here).

wait minute...

he is british?

hmmm.....

I have to agree with paul-to-the-third-power. I loved Bloc Party live at ACL and from other live videos. The singer has one of the strongest British accents while singing/talking that I've heard in a while. They put on a very high energy show and were spot on in every aspect IMHO. I would say worst for me was Embrace. I will always rant and rave about how he would stand motionless with his head down for 5 minutes while his band would rock out. The band themselves were great, but I think that I can only (barely) handle one UK Jesus out of Bono. The singer kept showing how enfatuated he was with himself while it was obvious that it was the band that had put out the only effort that night. I hate to say that one person could ruin a bands performance that badly.

modest mouse sucks ass live cause issac is always drunk and he slobers the words out and it sounds like a garbled mess. pairing that with their ****ty new album its even worse. they used to be good live when the songs were actually good, then it didn't matter that you couldnt really understand what he was saying because it ruled reguardless.

indeed the bravery were awful live when i saw them, but they weren't quite as bad as one of the other support bands...

sons and daughters... first time i had heard them, they sounded ok, but the male guitarist was a complete and utter twat, he stopped halfway through a song because he didnt feel the crowd was reacting the right way and refused to play the rest because the crowd weren't enjoying it as he thought they should have...

I saw Sons & Daughters in April and thought they were pretty good tbh. Except for the female singer who probably should have bought her dress in the next size up :/

firstly, it's quite obvious you have never seen them live. secondly well... you know i'm just going to let your immaturity speak for me when i say that you shouldn't be allowed to talk about music.

Gorrillaz (supposedly in the alt. category, even though they are hip-hop all the way.) They've seeped in the stupidest songs into rock radio. And the band members must be butt ugly since they never show themselves in public, just their demented cartoon characters.

bloc party - excellent live - extremely tight drumming - even my dad saw them on tv and said how god the drummer was

bravery - pretty much the opposite of bloc party - to be a dance band the drummer needs to be really tight on the bass drum - he wasnt, and the singing is just hopeless...

....

Your aware that the Gorillaz is the guy from Blurs' side project right?

I'm pretty sure it's just him and a bunch of studio musicians.

I got dragged to The Decemberists this year, and maybe it's just my dislike for them couple with an off night but they were really something awful.

^ Yeah, I've heard nothing but bad things about their live performances, I don't think it's much to do with the drum machine though (unless it's a poor quality one) because I've seen people play alright with drum machines.
