Goner Message Board / Memphis / the local scene

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.

There's an entire internet bulletin board dedicated to rock n roll in this town. What does your intuition tell you?

It's cheap to live here. I hope you have a car though.

A bike would probably suffice.

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.

Good luck with the "Punk Rock" search.
"vi" and "Hedgecreep" is the closest you'll get in Memphis.
The rest is either someone being weird for weird's sake, or trying to "fit in" by sounding like the Oblivians.

"Garage Rock" has a different meaning in Memphis.
