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.

drop dead gorgeous has never been from Dallas. There are some good local bands here in DFW, but most metal bands just seem to rip off Oh, Sleeper cause they made it out and got signed. I would rather have a bunch of heavy bands then FTSK rip-offs though any day. Hardcore scene is pretty popular here at least. 2004-2007 had some of the best locals though like Broadway and (in theory). Also, i hardly listen to anything new heavy or go to many heavy shows anymore so my opinion is a little different on current locals.

My bad on DDG. Always feels local though since I grew up watching them play local shows and festivals. Forgot about Broadway. Agree on the metal ripoffs and the ftsk rip offs (the hit, disco Curtis etc as bigger ones)

I think its mostly not a very well out together scene
