I guess this would be the right place to put this. Where, in the opinions of the good folk here at TB.com, would you say the best city for live music is? Base your answers on terms of venues, how often a band could play, the benefits a band gets (ie not pay to play), variety, poularity, competition, etc. I live in LA and as we know it has a rather diverse and crazy scene. However, there are the venues of pay to play and the somewhat rushed sets and shady gentleman who do (or don't) pay. I hear Austin is a hell of a place. What do ya'll think?
