Let's get this going again!
Quacked Up is my #1 must see punk act right now (they haven't hit the capitol since I got into them.) Fingers crossed.
Screaming Females is one of my favorite touring bands. They were supposed to blow up in popularity like The Men this year, but the world isn't fair. Cafe/Miller Lounge, maybe? They absolutely rocked the tiny room at Black Cat.
I think Ty Segall is the most likely punk act right now. He has wide enough appeal (even NPR made jokes about his 3 or 4 releases this year,) Roo tends to skew garage (JEFF, BBR, PUJOL,) and his act has attracted a lot of buzz. The entire band was amazing at Bumbershoot, and I'll be seeing him again in January.
As for other acts, I can see a Swans or My Bloody Valentine late night, maybe Menzingers, Thee Oh Sees or Royal Headache. METZ would get me to skip probably any conflicting act
