So I am feeling pretty adventurous and am saving the money just to book it somewhere to try see if I have what it takes to make it as a performing singer/songwriter. My music is pop/rock. I also am into coding/software.

I was wondering if anyone who lives in a city with any sort of music scene can suggest if it is appropriate to move there. I ideally want to be able to play every weekend in front of large crowds even if I have to hold a full time job. The best scenario is I could do music full time however.

Some cities I know off the top of my head are L.A., San. Fran, Austin, New York, Seattle, Chicago, Nashville. I am not sure which would be the best for pop/rock or singer/songwriter contemporary music however. Anyone see this genre big in their city?

You've hit the obvious, but also try places like Woodstock/Saugerties/Kingston, NY( the Mid Hudson River Valley is a pretty Creative scene in general, and very close to NYC)
