If you think that there is only 13 bands and 10 venues "doing it DIY" in the area then there probably isn't anything I could tell you that would be deemed legit at this point. I would suggest going to an event that isn't listed in the paper you write for.
What did we miss? Tell me more!
Frankie Knuckles, I am pretty sure you missed the entire point of this issue. And this article too. It's an overview. Meant as an introduction and a spotlight on a key player in the scene - not the only key player.
I think there already has been a few "Tampa Noise Comps."
Let's press a real TAMPA BAY NOISE COMP, then it will compute.
Well, it computes over in St Pete, down in Sarasota, Ft Myers, Orlando, Gainesville and Jacksonville..
Oh yeah.. Miami too.
You made it easy Tampa, all the "outsiders" did their own thing. Deal with it.
That's a short list.
no mr. beast, the article was about the "bay area" noise scene. that term covers a lot of ground and the fact that the city of tampa was completely absent from inclusion is Frankie's beef. And c'mon, the statement about "2010" and "gaining traction" is pretty far off you have to admit.
Frankie makes a good point about Creative Loafing.. not about St Pete.
I don't think the article was written by someone that worked for the history channel. "professor grif".
st. pete has a noise scene and it was talked about. it wasn't meant to be a history lesson. its just an article.
If you knew Tampa was going to complain then you knew the article was lacking.
i was wondering when tampa was gonna start complaining about this article..
Markus Lee, you play in hard rock cover bands correct?
"The Scene" is not the same as just playing music in Sarasota. Many of these Sarasota bands mentions have albums, music videos, and they tour around the country and are slowly but surely building a robust fanbase and recognition for their home town.
Creative Loafing, thank you for supporting Sarasota artists!
Unfortunately you left out all of the things that have actually been happening in the city of Tampa proper. At least you mentioned the International Noise Conference that has been taking place in Miami for almost a decade but I don't recall their ever being any coverage of it in this paper. Inexcusable since many bands from Tampa have been playing it and booking it since its inception. Hell, Tampa has been hosting a Pre-International Noise Conference since 2004 in art galleries, cafes, warehouses, etc. not as you suggest "only gaining traction since 2010."
In summary of Tampa's noise and experimental scene: There is lots of activity, been happening for many years, continues to be ignored. I suggest using the internet and digging a little bit and talking to new people. There is definitely more than just two or three people making many things happen in this city.
UNRB will be at Rock The Park, Curtis Hixon Waterfront Part on August 1st. This is a free show, come meet Noel Rochford and the band. They will be meeting everyone at the merch table after their set, copies of their new cd "Inform the Masses" will be available. 6:30 PM
Hard to break into? Really? WOW, hype, people will print anything……If your fat, old and missing most of your teeth, oh and have absolutely no talent I can hook you up with several clubs that will book you. Usually they prefer you do not use real musicians and stand there and play with machines and act like you have talent. Hard to believe a place that is supposed to be so full of music culture could be so lame. And of course we all know that everyone who’s a musician in SRQ has played with….wait for it…. Dickie Bets, LMAO!!!
