Surprised Coasta didn't make the list. (and maybe Seahaven?)
Either way I think JEW and Brand New are my most anticipated.
I've only recently found out about Coasta, but I'm loving what I'm hearing - any band opening a NGHBRS/HBSB show gets a listen.
(guess that gives away a few of my contributions to the list).
Ohhh, good call - there's just so, so much good music already scheduled this year.
