NYC Punk - Keeping The Scene Alive

When I was living in Morgantown, WV I was down with the local punk scene. This wasn't the shitty "punk" scene you grew up with in the suburbs - this was the real deal. The shows were wild, the bands were awesome, and the people were family. Morgantown even had it's own "punk house" - ever been to a punk house? If not you're missing out my friends, it's like a commune full of dirty, destructive, anarchist hoodlums - and it's god damn utopia.

Why am I talking about this you ask? Because believe it or not there is a punk scene in NYC. The NYC crew is a lot more organized, take a look at their website. If you're a weary punk traveler looking for a real show then this is your best bet. If you're in an NYC band and can't figure out where to play then they have resources to help you. It's damn near everything you need to stay in the loop, including news, band/show listings, movies, trade, and ride shares to shows.

So don't tell me the scene is dead in NYC. CBGB might be gone and the Continental might be a sports bar now but that doesn't mean the scene is dead. The scene is alive you just have to work a little harder to find it kids...
