Does Anyone Care What Madison Musicians Do?

Postby Madison Resident 2.0 » Sun Apr 28, 2013 6:39 pm

wondering how the scene is doing?...it was pumping and bumping back in the good ole bad days...cocaine showdowns at the Orpheum, Knuckledraggers ruling earth, Skintones of all types, Big Fat Asses, Paul Black, Paris, TX...ad infinitem (don't know what that expression means)....

does it still rock?, i'm old and scared now so i cant know....

secondary question, why is the home of Les Paul, beer and Harley Davidson unable to produce a viable band (Femmes notwithstanding)...but that's ONE band.....wisco made ONE band?

jeeeeeeeeeez,

Madison, along with the rest of the state, has a very vibrant multifaceted music scene. On many nights there are so many good shows going on it's difficult to choose which one to go to.

This talk about the Madison music scene being bad is nonsense. The scene actually has never been better.

Of course, if you're some loser who's living in the past and too lazy to get off your sofa it might appear to be different. But to those of us who actually go out to shows and support the local music scene it's a different story.

I'm not really sure what your point is or what your criteria for "national acts" is? There are plenty of hard working bands in both Madison and Milwaukee releasing records and touring. If you mean no top 40 hits, then yeah, but a lot us don't really give a shit about that.

This. I think people fail to realize how many more paths to success there are now than there used to be, and it's no longer necessary to "break through" on to national radio to be doing just fine.
