I don't think it's a p*ssing contest, I was just making fun of the idea Bangor was a desirable place because Sting played a concert there. Bringing up Phish is just silly, especially when Maine had like 60,000+ people for a couple of their large concerts in the state.

Re: What AE city would you want to live in.

The list of concerts that played there last year was very impressive and drew tons of people:

Staind/Godsmack
Gary Allan
Zac Brown Band
Beach Boys
Shinedown/Papa Roach
Rascal Flatts/Little Big Town
REO Speedwagon/Styx/Ted Nugent
Barenaked Ladies/Blues Traveler/Cracker
Def Leppard/Poison/Lita Ford
Big Time Rush
Keith Urban
Jason Aldean/Luke Bryan
Journey/Loverboy/Pat Benatar
Switchfoot

There were a few others but I didn't post them...

For a community like Bangor, that is a pretty big list of premier concerts.

Re: What AE city would you want to live in.

It's always fun to see what tangential argument will take over a thread like this. Anyone have Vermont versus Maine concert scene? I put my money down on "Baltimore: County vs. City". I thought I'd hedge by placing a little on "Where's Vestal?" but that also missed it by a mile.

Just a couple years ago, there was no concert scene in Bangor...it has blown up thanks to the new outdoor venue along the river & just down the street from the Casino and soon to open Cross Insurance Center.

I'm not even a big Phish fan, though they are undeniably talented musicians. It's pretty silly to downplay Phish' impact though, consider the crowds they have drawn to their concerts is the same as what the Superbowl draws.

There are plenty of reasons to not live in Burlington, but it won't be because of a lacking music scene. Burlington has a fantastic music scene, definitely would be at the top of any "best AE place to live" in the music category.

Higher Ground gets a lot of current musicians, that's one venue to check out.

Re: What AE city would you want to live in.

Burlington gets music on par or better than Portland, clearly better than anything around Orono.

I'm only listing cities I've been to:

Boston
Burlington
Albany
Baltimore
Durham
Hartford

Binghamton

What music, groups, singers are you talking about in particular? Better to you may not be better to someone else...depends on taste in music. I assume you are talking about local bands that play live in the clubs & pubs?
