Trust me, I've gone to see shows here and there with a very open mind. So before you call me bitter or whatever it is that makes you feel better, understand that. Honestly, it has been going steadily down hill since the early part of the 2000's. The closing of all the old clubs really sealed the deal.

So yeah, I will hold on to the past when it comes to this. All the acts I see nowadays are either four skinny, shaggy, nose in the air pansies whining about god knows what to some light-hearted guitar and drums; or some "tortured" chick basically crying into the mic with her acoustic; or two spazzes dancing around the stage with their keyboards to some electro-pop BS.

And forget about hardcore or punk. That **** is long gone.

So if you could link me to any of these cutting edge "brooklyn" bands that some of the publications out there gush about, I'd give em on honest listen. Thanks........

Too bad. I'm a big fan of hardcore punk. I haven't really explored the music scene. I was planning on seeing what there was to get into but your post makes it seem like a lost cause. Oh well.

Lost cause, my friend. Absolute lost cause. Sorry to tell you. You might find a sick of it all reunion once in a blue moon or something, but that is the extent of it.....

Holy **** Sick of it All, now that brings back memories, actually I saw them once at a show out in california, where they stood out quite a bit from the other bands at the show. I remember going to cbgb's and getting drunk and then trying to make it back to staten island without passing out, back in the late 90's. I have been away for awhile and just got back, even in the late 90's you could tell the bowery was changing, now that I saw it again it along with st. marks is like one big hot topic store. I barely even saw any of those panhandling out of state gutter punks.

Yeah I saw Guttermouth at Webster Hall a few months back so there always the national acts that are still kicking that come through. I was just hoping there was a more local scene. I guess I have to get on board with hipster music like in that Hyundai commercial.

I've seen it. How do they play live when they are knocking and banging on 12 different things at the same time? I mean you only have two hands. Ahh, the magic of studio recording. If you can't do it live I don't respect it.

First off I think its pretty cool that we're talking about Sick of it all on city-data. Second, I agree about the current music scene, its basically those hyundai commercials rehashed over and over. I'll just continue to listen to the music of my past since nothing is progresing in any form of music, its stale. For me personally I stopped making the trek to the LES when CB's closed, what I would give to see Breakdown or the Cro-Mags there one more time.

Yep, some guy on the Internet says there's no scene, so it must be true. Lost cause, definitely.

No there is a scene, just not a scene that has anything to do with the New Yorkers anymore. Hence the hyundai commerical music.
