Over the years, we've had the pleasure of meeting hundreds if not thousands of you here on our community site and some in person.
We want to take this chance to get to know you guys a little better and what better way to do that than by seeing where some of you are from?

That being said, sound off VF! What city around the globe do you hail from! viking
What are some cool alternative things that go on in your town? Clubs, shows, etc?
What kind of Alt people do you have the most of in your city? Goths, Emos, Metal Heads, Punks, Steampunks? Or do you just have a nice diverse amount of people where you live?

Let us know! Feel free to drop extra details about yourself or your city in the comments below! vf

Liverpool, it's a nice area!
We have a growing amount of alternative people here.
It's a mixed bag of goths/pastel goths, emos, metal-heads, and punks.

Not too much for steampunks or cybergoths here but man I'd love if we had more of that around :-) I personally love how accepting people are in my immediate area of the alternative community. We have a lot of concerts and a diverse music scene in the Syracuse area 10 minutes away.

I'm originally from Indianapolis Indiana. 18 years ago, we moved to the place where my dad grew up, Greenfield Indiana, which is about 30 minutes east of Indianapolis. These days, I spend a lot of time in a small town near Bloomington Indiana, called Unionville, which we refer to as Possum Holler. I spent a lot of time at a buddy's place. No running water, but it's a great place. My job takes me all over the midwestern US, though. In the last couple months, I've been to Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, and Missouri. As for a scene? We have a decent punk scene in Indianapolis. Where I live, there isn't much of a musical scene.

An insanely hot city in Arizona, I live in a predominately Hispanic community and there really isn't a big scene around, nor is it accepted by all the adults, there's a lot of emo and skater kids in my high school and but no goth, punks, and metalheads. Only when I go downtown or to the neighboring city where my University is at do I see some stuff that market to the alternative scene other than Hot Topic, but not as much as I was hoping for, in all my years in school I'm almost always that one super alt. kid in the class. Almost all the cool goth/punk/metal events I want to go to are 21+ so I gotta wait two more years. cry

Ghetto, ohio. Dont have anything for the alternative scene here unless you drive a hour or more.
Mostly you see the emo kids around but there are a good bit of goths here and there. I plan to move once I have money saved out of state

Originally from San Antonio, Texas. Which has quite a bit going on.

Currently stuck in middle of nowhere Indiana with my boyfriend I met on here. Being different is shunned upon around here. Sucks and makes me miss Texas most days.

I believe we are about an hour from Indianapolis. I could be wrong.

I grew up in Lewiston, Maine, a shithole of a city, but it had a lot of metalheads at the time. I just moved to Zephyrhills, Florida about a week ago. It's mostly old people around me, and it's more of a Winter haven/seasonal tourist/retirement community, but it's not far from Tampa, where VNV Nation's playing in October.

Came from a small town in CT. Most people were either unaffiliated, wanna be rednecks, or metal-heads (often overlapping w/ rednecks), by the time I left, that is. There used to be a strong emo/punk scene from the 90s to the mid 00s, but I missed that. I was in Catholic school most of that time. No way in hell could you dress alt, and you couldn't bring a music player to school. Hard to express alt-ness w/o those.
I was part of the remnants of the punk/emo/alt crowd. By that time, it had coalesced into just a general alternative group that was friendly with each other (with a few exceptions). Usually, there was 2-4 people for each scene. Alt rockers, punks, rudies/ska kids (of the 3rd wave variety), and some emo/scene undertones. Goth really didn't exist in my hometown, at least by the time I came round. Some of us (including me) listen occasionally to goth rock, but it's never took off in my group. Most of us can also tell the difference between goth, emo, metal, etc. Greenday and ska are generally enjoyed by all in my friend group.
Really, as for things to do, nothing happened in my hometown. If you wanted to do anything but chill, you had to go out of town.

Rio Grande (big river) is the name, Tierra del Fuego (land of fire) is the state, argentina the country, its an island way south near antartica, its not big, not a lot of goths, not even one punk around here, at least none that i have seen so far, yesterday it was the 96th year aniversity so i didnt work, witch is good for a tuesday. only good thing of this city is that i had a good job for like 12 years now, so i bought cars that i love, because im a huge fan of cars, bad thing is that everyone cheats on everyone, its a common saying in argentina "small town big hell"
