What Alternative (Rock) Could Compare For This Weekend?

See, I understand what Rock is right... Indie?.. Hmmm... Let's ponder this. I know Indiana Jones was also called Indie in a few high action scenes by his comrades or companion. "Indie" could relate to Indians, I know Indians used rocks for various reasons; to create dyes or hold down their teepees... {perusing the Web as I type}.

Aah. Now I get it. Independent right?! K whatever it means, the NOLA Indie Rock Fest is a 3 day "not-for-the-faint-of-heart, hear-it-first-before-you-gotta-pay-a-fify, rock your socks off-kind of fest starting tonight that is definitely worth the minor Hamilton you gotta lay down for an all-weekend pass.

The line-up includes Theresa Andersson, The City Life, Antenna Inn, Rotary Downs, Glasgow!, Big Rock Candy Mountain, The Zydepunks, and other ridiculously awesome peeps, both local and a-sorta far.
