music scene here is awesome, very diverse. i play a lot of hardcore and punk, but there is everything. even those crazy southern jug bands, haha. I threw up a couple of links to some of the bands i've played with if you're even in to checking out what they sound like.
You do have to put up with the rain and the weather being far cooler than down south though, but if you are in to it, then its the closest that we'll ever get to heaven, haha.
