The Dead played Woodstock, White Denim did not!

There's still some really awesome and novel music being made aside from all of that, though. Every time I attend a festival I'm amazed at the unique and diverse musical things so many groups are doing. In that sense, I think the "underground" music scene seems strong. There are at least a couple venues in Atlanta I know of that host some really great and unique bands regularly.
Part of the problem is that the music business has changed. American culture has changed. The world has changed. It has changed since 1995 and changed dramatically since the late 60s.

i don't know if it exists, but i hope someone here might suggest a few. again, this is not saying who is the next, but instead where should we look now a days.
