I thought this would be a cool new idea......

I got this idea from the other NE England local scence thread so why not make a local scene of the month? Here's some bands from my hometown of Winnipeg, MB, Canada:

Hollow Ground

Winnipeg's hardcore at it's best. Formed in April of 2003, and have shared the same stage with Raised Fist, Comback Kid, Foredirelifesake and Rogue Nation. Check them out.

The Downfall

Coming from Manitoba, Canada, The Downfall fuses elements of Metal, Hardcore, Emo and punk, with a strong focus on musicianship. Similar artists include Thrice, Boys Night Out, Grade, Hopesfall, In Dying Days etc... Taken from Purevolume.com

Cool :) you guys are lucky!

I can do one on the H8000 scene, but thats the only big scene we've got here, its overlapping every other local scene here and streches all the way down to belgium :)

haven't listened to those bands yet, but I will when I got some time, nice idea too! :cheers:

I wouldn't consider comback kid local. Yes they might be from Winnipeg though there pretty well know now.
