Does it suck as bad as I imagine? Is there any kind of scene there of any kind?

My post-graduation job search has led me to a position that I will most likely get (but might not take) that has openings in Little Rock/NLR and Detroit. I just really hate the cold, and generally prefer the South, but I can't imagine Little Rock is a very cool place. Cleveland, Milwaukee, Miami and/or San Antonio may also be options (but are not definites like LR or Detroit), but like I said, I hate the cold, and nothing has ever drawn me to San Antonio for any reason, although I've never been there...and I just assume Miami sucks.

There's a job opening in Detroit? Whoa. I guess the economy is coming back.

If you hate cold weather looks like San Antonio is your only option. Little Rock is the worst.

I like Little Rock but I only go there to visit my folks twice a year or so. The rocknroll scene doesnt seem to exist (it looks like Jack O and John Paul Keith play the Whitewater Tavern a few times a year - otherwise no rock action that I know of) If you dig live Blues its happening. Memphis is just over 2 hours away. There are some real good eats there (Catfish & BBQ mainly)
One decent record store - Arkansas Record Exchange. actually that store pisses me off - after digging thru crates for a few hours the owner looked everything up on popsike and wanted to charge outrageous ebay prices - so basically it was like i provided him a free service of finding his hidden gems. i don't mind paying a fair price - but not popsike high dollar on records i just dug hours for. ha, otherwise it's a decent store for used vinyl.

note that this post is coming from someone who moved away from arkansas over 20 years ago and spends about 2 weeks a year in LR

San Antonio is pretty cool, actually one of the biggest cities in the US, population wise....Austin an hour away....
