What's the local scene like around your areas?

The closest major scene in my area is Columbus, Ohio. I live in the middle of nowhere so it's hard for me to meet other musicians to play with, I was just curious about other people's music scenes.

San Diego doesen't offer much. The people here don't know what style to adopt. There is only like one club near where I live that features classic rock. You ask people in the U.S what rock is and they'll be cluless

Well I live in-between two major small towns, Shrewsbury and Aberystwyth, so that's where a lot of people go for big gigs and such, but theirs also festivals in the two towns nearest me which is where a lot of bands get known.
For me, I have to lug shit into school in-order to play with other musicians and half of them can't be arsed to being there own gear in -.-

Funny you should say that.:P SD has one of the strongest and most influential punk/hardcore/post hardcore scenes in the US with bands like Drive Like Jehu, Rocket from the Crypt, The Locust, Swing Kids, Hot Snakes and Antioch Arrow all hailing from that area.

The scene in Stoke-on-Trent, England is hardcore punk at the moment. But that's more just what everyone is in to - there aren't loads of good hardcore punk bands - just a few.

A lot of other bands aswell... got quite a few below average metal bands (tight playing, boring songs), some indie bands, some pop punk bands etc.

the music scene in my town of 100,000 people is surprisingly massive. It's almost exclusively metal, ranging from melodic death to groove/post thrash stuff. the shows here draw hundreds of people every week, and a few bands are getting signed, a band from my town called 'for today' is touring the country right now... I went to high school with their guitarist

Ok, so I live in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, which is pretty big (300,000 in the city itself, but 1 million or so in the surrounding area).
We get a lot of the big name acts when they go on tour.

But there is also a thriving local scene, and a lot of young Metal and Rock bands. Plus we have Chuck Berry.

I live in a college town so you can find about any kind of band that you want. The majority of the bands are southern/classic rock. There are several local bars where a lot of the better bands play regularly.
Really a fun place to be when I was younger.

There's no jazz around my area, which is a shame. I've been out of the city though for a few though but it's just no convenient. Shame, I think jazz is better live.
