Honestly, the only of these I even remotely care about is the job one.

Well, most of my experience is in film/tv and there's no way I'm going to get a cheap apartment in NY/LA. I also have experience doing similar stuff on events but I hate working on events. I'd rather do something clerical/office than work on events.

I'll second this. I have some acquaintances that live there. They get smashed every night of the week and stumble home.

Some areas on Buffalo's Westside are cheap and still in walking distance of the bars in Elmwood Village. The area near Grant and Lafeyette comes to mind first. Buffalo has a thriving, vibrant underground punk scene, if that's an interest.

The Fountain Square district of Indianapolis would be a great fit. There's lot going on in terms of nightlife, it's artsy, very walkable, and it's still cheap (for now at least).

If you don't mind the cold, I'd suggest Northeast Minneapolis. There's a great dive bar scene there, and the rent was super cheap (at least it was when I was living there there ten years ago); it might be different now. Check out the area near Lowry and University.

If you can take the heat, I'd check out the 4th Avenue district in Tucson. It kind of has a little bit of a crunchy, granola, hippy vibe going on, but it's lively, urban, walkable (a rarity in Arizona), and cheap. Great burritos.

Finally, I'll suggest Lakewood, Ohio. It's a dense, first-ring suburb of Cleveland (actually, the most densely-populated city in the state). From concert venues to dive bars to craft cocktails, Lakewood's nightlife is great, and you can still get a 1-bedroom for under $500 a month.

I second this option. Lakewood is a nice area and besides the financial side brings easy access to Cleveland's rail system, which is top of the class of the 2nd tier transit cities below NYC, DC, Chicago, etc.

Well, considering there are more bars per capita in Wisconsin than anywhere, you're never more than a few blocks away from one in Milwaukee or Madison or wherever.
