I'm thinking about going to college in Memphis. I was wondering what the underground music scene is like there, punk rock and alternative particularly.
in the "underground" thing here (us that dont have the energy or ambition or reason to beg the appeal of commerce or flyer for attention or leave demos under ardent's door) theres some interesting stuff happening.
indierock scene is gahdawful - sustained by folks banking on the fact memphians are slower to catchon to whatever pitchfork or paste is listening to and won't realize how accurately they ripoff whatsoever has been popular on a national level for the previous 6 weeks.
WEVL has some good shows: chick habit, JB's thing, Bucky's thing
yeh so, drink 15 or so beers, take a listen to The Barbaras, The Limes, Sector Zero, Useless Eaters, The Oscars, The Persuaders, and you'll figure out if you need to be here.
