Not at all. Every DIY scene I've experienced is not about the music and is pretty much a popularity contest / fashion parade. Virtually unrecognizable from any fraternity or bro party, just a slightly different kind of image obsessed posturing.
in my town: >weekend warrior blues lawyers >buttrock cover bands >and now for a coldplay song >terrible post-hardcore >terrible pop-punk >terrible rappers >jam bands >ableton faggots who all think they're the next gregg gillis
there was a fleeting post-punk revival thing happening but pretty much everyone who'd go to those shows was not too different from >>52969377
surprisingly the jam band scene is the only one that isn't filled with insufferable asshats
i'd give my left toes for a scene marginally interested in ambient, drone, experimental electronic, or even shitty post-rock
>>52969377 The answer here is don't hang out in college town DIY scenes. All losers from high school that are learning too late what it feels like to be popular. DIY is just a phase they'll grow out of before they evolve into hipster lawyers so they suck at it.
>my dream is to create music with people I care about >bring joy into people's lives and inspire them with music >make them forget their troubles and feel brotherhood and unity when they go to my shows >I cannot be happy with my life until I achieve this >yet someone with my passion and dreams somehow ended up living in the least musical country in the world
>>52970247 On one hand I think that it might be in my favor, you know? I try to look at the bright side. No one knows shit about music here and all Dutch music was pretty much always shit. If I would come out with my show ideas, put in some avant-garde shit while keeping it listenable for plebs with potential, maybe it would be like a wake up call or something. At least I don't have a lot of competition.
I try to look at it positively but damn man, the Dutch literally can't feel music. They just can't do it. They can't into music.
Ljubljana, Slovenia here. Yeah, there is some quite good music here, especially if we include the other ex-Yugoslav countries. But my home country of Poland has a much richer and more diverse music scene, there is no competition. It's a shame it's a much shittier country in general.
I'm from Bangladesh. We have really bad dadrock and that's about it. There's a small sized extreme metal scene that most of my friends are involved in. Otherwise it's just a sea of shitty heavy metal and metalcore. There aren't really any talented bands,atleast that I know of but theirs a really strong sense of community which is nice.I can't really play in a band though because of some health issues.
Not much, but it's ok considering it's a nation of 3 million people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gswqHRavEdI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nr9r_opyyK0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PorbIkAGEJs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThI-VTPlokQ
>>52969315 I live in Belgrade, and it's not really amazing. There are a lot of new punk bands, but most of them play the same shit local bands played 20 years ago. Rap game is shitty as fuck, mostly cause rappers either rap on shitty techno beats, rip off 90's east/west rappers or are the self-proclaimed defenders of traditional values and cocaine-fueled nationalism. Turbo-folk is ironically enjoyable, there are only a few good metal bands (Consecration, for example) and everything else is blander than photocopy paper. The only bands i love from here are Presing and Repetitor, that's it. Here are some decent bands: >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gqpXZF8Qvg >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MfqzmOFiEw >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZeqsMwHNSw >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pltBGhHFs2Q&list=PLC61819AC9E792A4F
>>52970526 Oh man, Repetitor are awesome and they kill live. Now that they've toured Europe, I would love for them to become more popular. Unfortunately that's probably not gonna happen, for one reason or another. Presing are also pretty decent, thanks for introducing me to them I guess, they've got nothing on Repetitor though, frankly. I really enjoy the 80s Belgrade scene, though. What's your opinion on it?
>>52970398 Długa historia.... ale jakoś skończyłem i nie mogę powiedzieć, że narzekam.
>>52970469 Well to be honest I live in my privilaged upper class bubble so for the most part my life isn't any different from most people here. I mean I have to deal with the dirty roads, slow internet and wait a month before I get anything from Amazon but yeah. God forbid if you live here and you're poor though. From a cultural aspect it's even fucking worse. Most people mean well I guess, but they're also bigoted and ignorant. You get all these edgy contrarians on 4chan talking about fighting the degeneracy and all that retarded far right stuff but they have no idea what it's actually like living in a corrupt opressive government where the police can take out and throw you in jail for 2 days for "looking suspicious and instigating trouble" (Look long hair and scary clothes! Get that fucker!)
>>52970506 There's a few, one or two are okay I guess.
