  1. yes? no? is drum n bass dead? what are your favorite underground electronica styles to see live these days? just curious... i'm thinking about starting up a Live P.A. electronica group here soon, and am curious as to what everyone is really into here in NYC these days. thanks for the input...
  2. yo. i'm a drummer/percussionist who's looking to get into the electronica scene here after relocating to NYC a while back. was wondering if you know of a good DJ who'd be interested in collaborating w/a live drummer? a good "live P.A." band who needs one? here's a link to my work: www.myspace.com/brianhickman1 peace, brian
  3. what i've found, after using msg boards more lately to do some moving research (haven't used them much in the past), is that there are 2 basic types of posters: 1. the "informer," who tries to answer questions, give info, and be useful 2. the "commentator," who replies to what the "informer" has posted and gives him/her shit, and who usually has like 20,000+ posts and sits at his/her (usually his) computer in his briefs all day and never leaves the house to me, the "informer's" posts are a LOT more helpful. but then again, the "commentator's" replies crack me up (or piss me off)....... lol
  4. thanks for the info poppanils... much more useful than sheendawg's reply
  5. seeing as how someone posted on a previous thread that they had a 2 BR apartment in greenpoint for $750/mo, you obviously can...
  6. i'm hoping to find a really cheap place in the $750 to $1000 range-- probably just a 1 BR apt for my gfriend and i. a second bedroom would be nice to be used for an office/studio, but this type of price range i'm thinking is in the 1 BR range... or am i wrong? BTW, can you even find an apt in NYC cheaper than $750? i haven't checked out actual rent costs online yet in NYC, although i have done so for san francisco a while back, which has a pretty comparable cost of living, from what i hear.
  7. thanks; let me know what you find out...
  8. thanks for the info everyone...
  9. "financial district"? what is that.... the area where the stock exchange, etc, is?
  10. thanks for the info guys. i'll check out craigslist to get an idea of some rental prices. from what i've heard from a few people so far, brooklyn seems to be a good bet for where i might move. i'll check into the southern part of the lower east side, though, as well.
  11. i'm a musician interested in doing a live/electronic music blend, and thinking about moving to NYC. are there any neighborhoods in the NYC area that come to your minds where the housing costs are more moderate, and that would be a good spot for a musician to live? i'm not really talking "ghetto cheap".... just a spot where i could move w/my girlfriend, make a living playing music, and still be able to afford rent...
  12. I'm leaving out NYC b/c I want to see how you all think these 3 other cities compare... Are there any pros/cons about each city's scene that immediately come to your mind? In addition to the club scene in each city, any pros/cons about their live music scenes as well?

  14. miami scene?

    coachjames: thanks for the info everyone else: thanks for the humor..... big chief: thanks for the belittling comment about my current residency in the cow-infested state of arkansas
  15. miami scene?

    yeah, from what i've seen, NYC seems to be the mecca in the states for EDM played by both DJ's and live bands. the only thing is that my girlfriend has some pretty major inhibitions about moving to NYC at this time (maybe in the future, though). additionally, up to this point, i have more experience w/funk & groove types of live band gigs (b/c there's no EDM scene around here), and it might be better for me to move somewhere else besides the "mecca of EDM in the states" first to get my chops in and knowledge of the genre more up to par. maybe once this is done it would be time for NYC, but i'm thinking moving somewhere else right now would be the smarter decision...
