You're not looking in the right places.

I don't know where you're living.
There is no screamo scene here whatsoever.
I've never even heard of one band that has any influences outside of The Black Dahlia Murder in the proximity of 20 miles.

lets see, Letters In Binary, Ariadnes Thread, Men As Trees. Those are three pretty awesome screamo bands that are in Michigan near detroit. Then of course there is **** lol. Theyre of course not screamo though. I have allways heard that Michigan has a pretty well established scene.

Ariadne's Thread and Men As Trees both live over an hour away!
I've heard of them but never listened.
Letters In Binary is pretty popular, I've listened to them a bit, I don't know if that's just because they're from Detroit or they're actually more popular.

I have never heard that Michigan has a well established scene and maintain my position that there are barely any screamo bands in Michigan, let alone within 30 minutes driving distance.

Edit: I will say though they are good bands, even though one is named after a Saetia song. They had a concert on the 24th, that's pretty cool. Have you been to any of their shows?

It's in Raleigh, like 10-15 blocks behind Hillsborough Street. They have nice little acoustic house shows, food not bombs and some high school kid's distro. It's also nice if you ever need to bum a place to sleep. Being right off of I-95 and in a Train and Bus Station town I can offer if ever needed as well.

And DIY Fest had free vegan cookies -I had a couple of dozen.
I ride through Wilson coming from Richmond through Rocky Mount south towards Jacksonville, FL. It always makes me smile looking over and riding beside Railroad St I've never actually gotten off there, so I don't know if that is a downtown area or not, but that street always makes me smile

And as for Raleigh, i actually spent a night there on two occasions, once after hitchhiking there after trying to catch to Raleigh from Hamlet and getting chased out by the bull (there's a daily train that leaves out of Hamlet and i didn't feel like waiting another day). Walked around Raleigh, raided the Wholefoods like you wouldn't believe, went back and caught a train that ended up hitting a switch and going right back to Hamlet! Ugh. Hopped off, slept on top of Wendy's, and hitched a ride straight to Chapel Hill in time for the Really Really Free Market

The other time i was in Raleigh was when i was trying to catch out to Greensboro to catch the daily WBD to Chicago and it was with my travel partner and my other partner Porter and we were all just hanging out in a beautiful little jungle we made by the tracks, started talking to the female-bodied person whose house was nearest the tracks by us, they ended up giving us a bunch of "food", much of which we had been planning on giving back as we all don't poison ourselves with animal products. As we were writing a thank you note, they must have called the police as sure enough there they were. There was nothing for them to hold us on and it was complete **** but they ended up taking Porter (as zie's not yet 18, as though that makes any difference in anything. Ugh, ageism, sexism, transphobia, gender roles The entire time the ****heads were talking about how zie needed to be careful traveling with us (and they kept getting Porter's pronoun wrong) and that zie was going to get raped and molested as a female bodied person always does and that they can't defend themself and whatnot) which upset me incredibly and i went off on the ****heads and the female-bodied person who called us in and, yea. If you are ever in Raleigh again (this was maybe two months ago?) you'll probably find a lot of **** COPS and COPS ARE ****HEADS scrawled all over town in beautiful large, black ink.

Sorry for going on and on, i'm just reliving a lot of really intense memories... I like Raleigh a lot as a town, just never really had good experiences getting out of there.

Here is where the female-bodied person befriended and betrayed us all within a few hours!

Here is where the ****heads harassed us.


And many great bands have come out of Michigan. Constatine Sankathi, Cap'n Jazz, Jihad, Bev.Clone, Ordination of Aaron (I think?), Wallside, etc.

I'm just curious, where do you live in Michigan? And of course if you want to see good music you might have to drive, especially local. Lansing and Flint/Birch Run have some pretty good screamo bands(also good grindcore bands). If you get the chance next year, attend Dirtfest in Birch Run. Many of the bands are pretty lame, but they also have some real gems. When you get more into Metro Detroit you have more of a metal scene.

oh lol I didnt know they were that far away. Yea Men as Trees and Letters In Binary played a show with Towers and Peter &Craig who are on tour. That show must have been insane. I was supposed to go see Men as Trees both times when they came to Baltimore but the first time the show got cancelled because it snowed and the second time it was at a house show, and I wasnt in the mood to go try to find it by myself. I wish I could have seen Letters in Binary live, that would be so kickass, they were supposed to come to Baltimore on their tour but then rerouted it for the west coast. I think its probably just in Detroit that they're popular. I dont have too many tools at my disposal haha but they're myspace has like 12k views and around 850 friends. Yea I was wondering where Ariadne's Thread got their name from for a bit till I was listening to Saetia on my ipod and then saw that same song title haha.

That's what I'm talking about, THAT scene.
I live in Belleville, don't you live in Ypsilanti?
Last week I passed by Birch Run on the way to Frankenmuth, Dirtfest is pretty tight, though an hour away or something.

I live in Waterford, near border to Pontiac......so I jumped into the conversation late and got confused. What genre do you claim there is a lack of in Michigan?
