Random Notes

Bands with a # after the name were all first mentioned on ProductshopNYC
Bands with an * after the name are all mentioned on that hoax list that made the rounds back in late November (although Coldplay was added by the press). But many of these bands are still being mentioned and besides, even an incorrect rumor is still a rumor, and I'm trying to be thorough here, dammit!
