Okay this is an odd idea, so if this is against the rules go ahead and close it.
I'm an A&R guy for a record label, and i'm wondering if you guys can recommend bands from the Western states:
California
Oregon
Washington
Arizona
Nevada
Idaho
New Mexico

Obviously, preferably unsigned, but recognizable names.

Thanks!

You're the laziest A&R guy I've ever come across

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

The Irish Front is from Arizona.

I've been in talks with them for the past couple of weeks.
We already scooped up the best band in AZ imo (The Blood Countess) for our tour and hopeful signing.
