The Cure - The Curse
This Cure tribute band dates back to 2003. Their most recent show was in February 2012 in Covina, California.
The Cure - The Cureheads
This tribute band has been performing for over 20 years! You can check out their videos and live clips here at the site. I have to hand it to Gary Clarke, he really does an incredibly good impression of Robert Smith's singing voice.
They'll be performing several shows in June 2012 in England and Holland.
Sisters of Mercy - The Reptile House
A San Francisco-based tribute band. My favorite tribute song by them is their version of Lucretia.
Joy Division - Transmission
"Devoted to recreating the atmosphere of a live Joy Division gig." They're playing a gig every other month or so in the UK in 2012.
The Smiths - The Sweet and Tender Hooligans
Oh my gosh, I had no idea how very many Smiths tribute bands were out there. I may have to do a separate post featuring many of them. Meanwhile, I chose The Sweet and Tender Hooligans for this post because of their long twenty year history as a tribute band. Based in LA, they are still performing actively and seem to really be enjoying what they do.
Siouxsie and the Banshees - The Happy Haus
Currently they're scheduled to play several southern California shows.
