Back in my day, we always thought the best place for a concert was in L.A. It just seemed bands would really put on a show when they got to L.A. Maybe because that's where the producers were?

Then Austin started getting a lot of press, but frankly I went to Austin recently and the bands weren't that good. So I guess Austin's no longer the place... which leads to the question: which city has the best music scene these days?

Sorry but Seattle is not home to the best music scene. Maybe for a particular genre but not overall music scene.

Overall, it is definitely LA. NYC a ver close second.

However, the LIVE music scene I would have to say is Austin and Denver.

Let's not forget Nashville, home to country music.

For the party/club scene, I would say Miami leads because of the different clubs I've heard of.
