So I live In Miami Florida. Nuf Said. Many have this incredible Misconception " Miami Florida is such a commercial city, The Music scene must be poppin! " This place is so fucking dead in terms of music it's ridiculous. Almost *EVERY* Venue in Miami is shut down because of wana be Hard ass Kids flippin tables and starting confrontations with police, Cafe crystal, Drakes, Studio 12, The Dugout, Every major music Venue I grew up with is shut down. The only well knows (Metal/Hardcore) bands that Have signed out of Miami Florida has been Thick as Blood (Horrible Band) Poison the well (Pretty alright) And Isetmyfriendsonfire (...) This Scene is suuper dead. No shows no nothing, I have to travel 45 minutes to west palm beach where the scene is a bit more lively just to get to a show when a good band comes to town. Thus Poses my Issue. I remember the days when Myspace was a tremendous tool for music. Now everyone's on facebook and no one gives a shit about music on facebook, At least you don't find bands getting recognized on FB as easily as myspace. I just go to bands I already know about on facebook to hear em from time to time. So I leave the Navy Soon to come back home to Miami Florida. I've been writing and recording here in my little apartment but I really don't know which approach to take in terms of music online cause it's me all by myself for now, Of course i'm gana look for member's eventually but that place is so dead its a black hole. How the hell do I go about getting recognition? youtube is all about [[HD]] cameras, Live performances, or music videos in terms of band. Is there A good site I don't know about. How do you get your music noticed in a dead scene as a solo project. Last but not least. I'm considering moving if a couple of friends of mine back home are up for it. I've been thinking L.A for the past 6 months for the music scene. What do you guys think? I know L.A and New York Are great places for music. I know I'ts a lot to answer thank you guys, I don't have a lot of spare time till I get out, so sorry for the bombardment.
