OK that might have been a slight overreaction... I'm just surprised.. Personally, if I had to pick the odd ball out of those 3 bands I'd say it was mewithoutyou.
Have you listened to O' Brothers new cd? I wouldn't classify them as a jam band
Why should mewithoutYou come after O'Brother? O'Brother just released their debut album I believe, whereas mewithoutYou has been around for a decade.
And I've never listened to them on CD before, I've just seen them live twice and each time was equally forgettable. You couldn't hear the lead singer when he even sang, and they just went into ridiculously long jam sessions. They're not a bad band in any sense, but there are so many more deserving bands and I'm sick of seeing them open for every great band recently, especially when they don't even put on a good show.
