That's cool. I always think it's interesting how certain cities become magnets for specific musical styles. Like how in the 80s you had all these glam bands coming out of L.A. even though most of the people involved weren't from there originally.

I had some sort of mix up I guess. I'll change it. Doing 50 states is hard work.

EDIT: Turns out I got confused because of something I read about Black Flag refusing to play in Florida. *facepalm*
