Hey, OP! I'm liking a lot of the bands mentioned in your post.

For harder edged stuff, the whole garage rock revival thing from San Fransisco heroes like Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin is really working for me. (And Bass Drum of Death, which you mentioned.) If you have a chance, catch Ty and Mikal on tour together. In addition to assaulting your ears with their guitar-driven weirdness, they are also friendly and approachable to boot.

For indie experimental, one of my favorite shows last year was Tuneyards, who were touring with a fun duo called Buke & Gass. B&G is a boy/girl duo who are writing very eccentric songs and making a ton of noise with their homemade instruments. Tuneyards is a girl and her loop station, backed by a bassist and two saxophones. Sounds strange; but was a powerful show. The crowd couldn't get enough and barely let her leave.

Wavves and Best Coast tour together, or at least they did last year, and are worth seeing if you get the opportunity.

Looking forward to seeing Tennis in February as a change of pace. Their last album grew on me to be a work favorite (Best Coast's too).
