, though keeping things relatively white and "indie"--the subtitle is "Baltimore's booming indie-rock scene"--with a round-up including Wzt Hearts, Ecstatic Sunshine, Wye Oak, Ponytail, and, of course, Dan Deacon. Other notable features: 1) Holy shit, this is actually more words than pictures; 2) the article starts off mentioning ex-residents Spank Rock (not indie rock), Yeasayer (yes, very), and Animal Collective (by default); 3) again: kinda late on this, eh?; 4) Floristree resident/booker and Wzt Heart Jason Urick practically has a part-time job as underground Baltimore journalist liaison, winning or close to winning the award for most quoted local figure. "I'm not sure why I keep getting interviewed other than it seems Floristree is one of the 'hip' easy things to write about in these mini-tourism pieces," he writes us via e-mail. "All in all I think it's pretty funny, but for the most part the articles have been total throwaway page-filler BS. Why any of the writers bother to even talk to people here when they just end up reprinting misinformation from previous articles anyways is beyond me."
