Texas State Hipster? ....maybe?
It's been two months since I moved from Austin to San Marcos to go to Texas State University, and I gotta say, I kinda like it here...except for two things: (1) there isn't a big music scene here. At all. I missed Phobia, Saviours, and now Deftones (their new album isn't as emo-ish as the previous two) in Austin while being here. I think the biggest band that San Marcos has had since I was here was Peelander-Z, and I couldn't go due to studying for a test or quiz or something, I forget, and (2) I haven't met anyone who listens to the same stuff that I do. When I tell new friends that I like grindcore and powerviolence, I might as well feel like a hipster saying, " I listen to stuff that you've never heard of" to them! All the friends that I have here are great, but they're more into stuff that I'm not into at all: screamo metal, mainstream bullshit, and your average boring band on the ACL Fest lineup. Hell, 99% of them had a question mark on their head when I mentioned FFF! If anyone is out there and goes to Texas State, I wanna know: am I going to the wrong people here?
