I’m unfamiliar with most of the above groups, but stand out names are:
The National – Check out the album Alligator for some morose ballads; a la Joy Division.
The Go! Team – Sadly, they're on at the same time as the Foo Fighters.
Sleater-Kinney – Energetic girl power. Yet to hear their 2005 release.
