Does anybody else live in South Carolina? How about the Myrtle Beach area? Do you know what music we are famous for? Hundreth and Firehouse! Nobody knows the story of the best band ever to hit Myrtle Beach, Sqwearl, which you can check out on ReverbNation.
My grievance is with the Myrtle Beach House of Blues. I look at so many tour schedules that come out and I see venues all over the United States and most of the time every single House of Blues except the Myrtle Beach location? Why is that? Because the music scene in Myrtle Beach is TRASH. GARBAGE. BULLSHIT. You see I have been to pop-punk, classic rock, heavy metal, thrash metal, prog metal, death metal, metalcore, and deathcore shows at the venue and you know what I saw? A bunch of moshing to acoustic songs and emo ballads. Why? Because the area only cares about DEATHCORE. Myrtle Beach is a breeding ground for high school whores and testosterone driven boys that want to fuck and fight.
Another problem is that we get so many artists that go to Georgia or North Carolina instead of us. We have three or four large arenas that could house a major artist and hundreds of small bars and clubs that would love to get some artists in. Nobody wants to come to our state. We reach out to bands, tell them how great the scene is and so many people say “oh yeah we love that state”….they don’t come. Citizens of South Carolina, WHAT SAY YOU? Reach out and help get better music into our state!
