State & Plain Ithaca, New York
State & Plain play songs that are equal parts Bubblegum Pop and Sub Pop.
You could accuse State & Plain of being enthralled by their musical favorites (VU, Pavement, Guided by Voices, the Violent Femmes, Yo La Tengo). You could call them parochial in their love of Ithaca's West and South sides. You could even say that they're in it for the free beer. And you might be right.
