Baltimore's own Payola Reserve play some classic sounding rock with a little southern blues/R&B influence. First time I've seen them playing with backing horns. Their album 200 Years has more of a later Beatles influence.

Longwave plays some Death Cab for Cutie-sounding indie rock, with heavier guitar thrashing. Frontman Steve Schiltz also sounds about ten times less annoying than Ben Gibbard.
