Local Music

Easy Street Records had Pearl Jam and Nirvana in the "Local" section, which made me guffaw. I didn't think that kind of band should count. But then I meandered into the film festival and saw the drummer from Hole introduce the documentary about her journey from celebrity drummer to crack whore to sober, married dog-walker:
The hostess asked the crowd: "How many of you have played in a band with Patty?" and 5 or 10 people raised their hands, and people cheered when the film mentioned her high school punk bands. So I guess Hole counts as local.
