johnson's barn has hosted raves for a very long time, nothing new there. the variety of the hub is decent, though it is not a place that would fall into the category of "underground" the way that johnson's barn might.

except, those aren't underground places, those are all well-advertised venues. the closest thing to "underground" that we had (recently) was "the compound" (as i mentioned before) and the way that johnson's barn was 6-10 years ago (almost exclusively word of mouth raves).

I think the OP was considering "underground" to mean "non-mainstream genres".

I don't know where my post went but as I mentioned in it there are still the occasional house show and the Aquarium and The Red Raven are places that host "underground" music. Primarily punk rock, hardcore and indie rock. As someone said the person was referring more to a music scene outside the mainstream genres. Punk rock, indie, hardcore etc play frequently at those places along with a local scene made up of those bands, thus I would consider that an "underground" scene.

Fargo might be the biggest city in ND, but it's still a fairly small town. There is interesting art, music, stores, thrift stores, and some fun events, but not as frequent or abundant as larger places. That being said, Orange Records is a better record store than Fargo has any right to have. I never walk in that place without walking out with something (which is one reason I don't go as often as I'd like to). The Aquarium has a really steady stream of good bands that should be familiar to you if you're into underground stuff.

You're from Tucson? I love Nobunny, Okmoniks, Shark Pants & Knockout Pills. I haven't heard anything recent out of Tucson though.
