does Dallas / Ft Worth even really have a scene? only band I know outta there are like Oh Sleeper and FTSK. Im moving myself to Austin in the fall. I know its live music capital an all but not sure what the local scene is like. I'm guessing indie, prolly not hardcore/metal like my Syracuse scene is.
I'll be in Austin this fall too. Austin has a scene that is pretty diverse, but a lot of it is tied to the bar scene from what I've seen. Dallas had a metal scene with little to no variety - crown the empire, Memphis May fire, everyone dies In Utah, drop dead gorgeous, capture the crown, etcetera. Bigger rise core bands have a draw here that is ten times their normal.
