    Default Rock

    I have been asked to spin between performances at a band night. I'm not much into rock, so I hope you guys can advise me some classics. I want to play some indie, a few classics, and maybe some electronic rock.

    I'm thinking of some of the following:

    Beatles
    Gorillaz
    MGMT

    I hope you guys can point me into the right direction.

    iTunes is your friend and emusic is pretty good on indie stuff. See if there's any local bands that are similar to the bands playing.

    This is a good read on the subject.

    The Ramones, Black Flag, Joan Jet have their place as well

    Bit of punk always goes down well.

    Dead Kennedys - California Uber Alles
    Pixies - Debaser
    Clash - Rock The Casbah

    Maybe even a bit of ska later in the night, Bad Manners, Specials, Madness.

    I did the same thing for a whie at a heavy metal club, you can get away with quite a few genre shifts if you keep to the classics.
