i will be living in Indianapolis for a year, and I was wondering for those who have lived or are living there, if the music scene is decent.

are there good venues for unsigned bands to play, such as small festivals and bars/pubs?

are there a sizable amount of rock/metal/alternative musicians in the are ?

i want be be able to join a band when i move there.

Its crime index is a 3

Out of a scale of 0 to 100

Where 100 is the safest

The whole of Philadelphia is at a 9, with the west end appearing to be much more crime ridden than the east end.

he didn't have to move because of the crime

he had to move because of the fight

getting in a fight with hoodlums isn't a crime
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I know it isnt a crime to get in a fight, but since west philadelphia has a high crimerate there are a lot of bad people there. And bad people like to fight.

Soooo....

Well, it depends on what you are used to. I used to live 60 miles north of Holywood and I now live 60 miles north of Indianapolis. So, for me, the music scene in Indy sucks. Other than music though, I have to say that I surprisingly enjoy Indiana.

There's a lot of small venues that put on good shows. Mostly from bands that are out of town thogh.
