To start, if you're familiar with Neko Case, her long time touring vocalist is Kelly Hogan. Kelly had a project called The Jody Grind. That would be the first one that comes to mind. There may be more forthcoming.

The Insect Surfers! They were part of the SoCal Surf scene in the 80’s and 90’s (and perhaps still are), and their leader David Arnson came to a lot of the shows The Hillbilly Souls Surfers did when I was a member of that instrumental trio. One night the two bands shared the stage at a venue, and Dan Valentie, who had played bass in THSS off and on before and after Pete Curry left to join Los Straitjackets, was playing in The Insect Surfers. It was quite a scene, and David was kind of it’s Iggy Pop.
@bdp24 Ha. Yeah that band played a ton of shows around DC and U of MD back then. All the punk and indie fans around there loved them and there was quite a scene with the DC 9:30 Club as the pinnacle room for those of us left of center musically.
It's funny, but today's Austin scene has that same raucous vibe coming from tons of local bands that weren't even alive back then! Cheers,
