Regional Acts that SHOULD be Huge #1 - Domo

Regional Acts that SHOULD be Huge #1
All across the country there are great bands that have received little exposure outside of their immediate local and regional scenes. Hopefully this MP3 series will help clue us all in on a few of these bands that should be on all of our iPods.


This Tempe, AZ 3-piece packs a mighty punch! Guitarist and main vocalist Captain Advantage - AKA Jason Sukut (previous keyboardist for fifteen minutes fast) has an unbelievable talent for consistently writing some of the most catchy hooks I have ever heard. Honestly - my wife and I will go weeks on end, unable to get a particular line or riff out of our heads!

Their 2006 self-released Sweet Creepy not only boasted one of my favorite album titles of the year, but was packed end-to-end with strong indie-pop-punk gems. Gems I tell you! Priceless Gems!!! Since my current location (NE) has prevented me from seeing them live and picking up a CD in person, Cpt. Advantage was even kind enough to mail me the LP. Needless to say, when I caught wind that they would be releasing another LP, this time on the nascent Dromedary Records (also in Tempe, AZ), I immediately put in my order. Again, Domo pushed all of my right buttons pleased me with another strong release.

Everyone (and their dog) should go to their webstore and purchase these two LPs and flood their email boxes with requests for a 3rd LP to come out ASAP.
