Re: Which city should a chose for musicians?
Dudes, every music scene "sucks" because it's only the minority, the 0.1%, of bands, venues, etc that are truly good. Anywhere. True, some trends are far more popular in some areas than others, but overall, all scenes suck.. it's just what you make of it, and the effort your group puts in.
To the OP, most northeastern cities would probably be a bad business decision, same with the left coast.
