If you're already tuned into the local music scene, there's nothing really surprising on this list, but it's worth taking a peek at if for no other reason than to see some talented Washington bands get some deserved national press.
Congrats, all! You're making the Pacific Northwest look real nice.
(Also: It's good to see some more great bands and musicians are getting shout outs in the comments, too. Get in there and show 'em what else we've got!)
