After having seen them last night, I gotta push for the excellent band Alberta Cross. This is a New York-based band, formed by Swedish Petter Ericson Stakee (vocals, guitar) & Terry Wolfers (bass). They opened for  Them Crooked Vultures earlier this year. And they have sold out several shows on their tour during 2010. Check them out!
