Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

There's so much new music out there, it's sometimes hard to pick who to check out. Today UK-based music news magazine NME released it's 50 Best News Bands of 2010 list -- as they describe it, "the 50 bands who've blown our minds over the past few months."

Since we're Los Angeles, a good number of local bands are given props, including Warpaint, Avi Buffalo, Best Coast, Grouplove, Zola Jesus, Foster the People, Kisses, Funeral Party, Active Child and Glasser.

Congrats to all!
