i swear its just the city. you have either metal heads or emo kids (you have NO idea how many emo/screamo bands are getting gigs in my nieghborhood alone) but if you arent either of those 2 things, you will be ignored. god forbid someone attempts originality.

Hey I'm a guitarist from the Philly area. Just recently started a band and looking for a songwriter/singer. My roots are in hard rock/metal/electronics but we are open to many styles of music. It is true that most people from Philly seem to be of the metalhead or emo style. But I haven't run into enough people for it to matter when attempting to write music.

I'm only about a half hour away from philly. I'm in Berlin, NJ, and it's equally as hard to find musicians devoted to forming a band and keeping it together out here. I saw that some of you guys that posted here are from around my area. If you want to start a band with me, check out the topic I made in here. I play guitar and play anything from classic rock to death metal. I also have another friend who plays guitar, and we need a singer, bassist, and drummer.

Sorry if it seems like I was just giving an advertisement pitch there, but my friend and I seriously wanna start something soon. The only other thing we don't have is a practice spot large enough for a band to set up in.

Also, I completely agree with you on the overabundance of emo kids in philly. If it's not gang-bangers i'm seeing walking down the streets, it's little emo boys dressing like girls with the tight ass girl pants, black hair slicked to the side, the wrist bands to hide the cuts, and enough eye shadow to turn their face black if it rains. Didn't that used to be called goth, until emo went and gayed it up? And what's with all the screamo bands thinking they're metal? Screamo is definitely not metal, because metal doesn't suck on a massive scale.
Question not yourself. Challenge those who would deny you your true self for an independent thinker is the greatest enemy to those who seek to control you
