I'll say Brand New, but according to my friends it is Gaslight Anthem.

Menomena's new album was pretty awesome. Alternative might be the vaguest description of a genre ever, though.

Perhaps we can pare it down to something incredibly specific? How about Post-Pretentious? Is that just Tentious?

I haven't listened to anything they've done aside from the split they did with Trophy Scar. Seemd pretty alright, but I haven't taken a chance to hear their other works.

I'm not sure if I'd consider it "alternative" but I'd say 100 Monkeys Of course I'd say they're best in whatever category

They have a tour coming up in the south - more info is on their site - 100monkeysmusic(dot)com

(fyi, I'm just a fan and not officially with the band in any way)

Arcade Fire is a good one. Is Kings of Leon too main stream to be considered alternative?
