Default How to meet other musicians, music fans, etc?

I seem to only meet people that are into mainstream radio and pop and it annoys me. I've heard of a few music-specific dating sites like "Rock 'n Roll Dating" and such, but do they work? Seems unlikely, but might be fun. What other ways are there besides just being courageous out at shows?

Move to an area with a huge music scene and go into clubs and stuff.

sites like this.... keep an eye out for anyone who lives in the same area, and then follow them home, and make them be your friend

Music stores, shows... It's really not rocket science.

I know of people that listen to indie music (that actually live in the same area). All but one of them are Independent fagtoids.
