What about Minneapolis?

Perhaps a place like Boulder CO, Parts of Detroit(actually and Ann Arbor is a college town close by that could work), Perhaps some of the bigger Upstate NY cities, Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

As a city, Memphis has more rough edges (areas) than Nashville and Austin--at least on a more visible level.

Been to Minneapolis, very nice town but too darn cold in the winter. Same with NY, I've lived in Brooklyn and one winter there was enough for me.Colorado would be sweet as well, but still a little too cold. We're looking for somewhere warmer.

Athens, GA caught my attention along with NC and Nashville/Knoxville. Looked up some info on Athens, sounds like the real deal.

Boulder is awesome, but the cost of living there is not. It is similar to the Seattle area, that aspect. Very hipstery out there, too. (Not sure if that's a word...) Fort Collins is a little less expensive. I guess if you want the beauty of the west, you'll have to pay for it. Columbus, OH actually has an awesome music scene with some great venues to play. I have a couple of friends who are in bands, and Columbus is a good city for musicians! There is a good variety of genres and types of venues, plus you have Ohio State University right there with around 60,000 students....they need something to listen to on Friday and Saturday nights!

Good luck in your search!

Columbus is a nice city, and maybe it has a good music scene, but if the OP found the winters in NYC too cold for his liking, he surely won't care for the winters in Cols.
