any responses?
thanks for the 50 b-day dance help.

Even though I have mixed feelings about the last Strokes record (loved it at first, wore off for me quickly when I counted how many songs I was skipping on it, but still like its high points alot), I'll always believe there's real greatness to that band. Inspiredly derivative !.....Reigning Sound, definitely. One of the few bands I look forward to hearing everything they do. I also would say the Constantines who at their best are a band you can really believe in.....The Hold Steady for me also, although they're definitely a love it or hate kinda thing.

I think I get it.

Gang of Four
Mission of Burma
Radio Birdman
Hoodoo Gurus are playing up the road this week, I think it's a bit of a part-time exercise for them (and probably most of the above)
Speaking of Howie Gelb, am enjoying 'Sno Angel Like You'

she just wants to know of any "great, cool bands" that are current and she listed ramones, police, rolling stones as great...i suppose it is the desire to know/enjoy/see a band when it is starting out as see it develop.

Oops, that means I interpreted it in reverse.

Off the top of my head:

The BellRays
Porcupine Tree
The Music Lovers
The Hellacopters
The Drive-By Truckers
Motorpsycho
Pure Reason Revolution
Current 93
Sufjan Stevens
Alejandro Escovedo
3
Wayne Kramer
The Dexateens
Neko Case

Most of those folks have been around for a while, but many are still developing. If your daughter digs the Stones, she might try the Dexateens, who've got two albums out and are working on the third with the Truckers' Patterson Hood in the producer's chair. Word is it'll be a big leap forward for them.
