Come on over to Portland. It's very crunchy and probably what your looking for. It's like a side show here.

I hear old people saying that all the time...but than why do like 50,000 people show up for that burning man fest every year, and allot of them aren't old?

Also, I'm talking about people who are "different" in general, not just one scene. I doubt that those Indy rock guys are a dying breed, or even goths for that matter.

Northern California has a lot of suburban bohemians now(LOL). Still SF. despite being overrun by rich yuppies, has many bohemian types. Oakland-Berkeley does too.

Fairbanks, AK is where old hippies go to die. If you want a boho scene come up here. They are everywhere.

If you're looking for the Burning Man crowd, the Bay Area (specifically SF or the east bay) is the place. It started here and still has a significant influence on the festival.

There's also plenty of weird people around who don't need to go out to the desert to freak out.

If 50,000 people show up for anything it isn't that weird. Here's the deal, by the time you have heard that a place is "hip" it's no longer cool. The cutting edge means creating trends, not following them.

I hear that a lot of old-school hippies retire to Montana, as well.
