I'm in Melbourne, its a big city......has alot of good parts that are great to explore. Probably the only city in Australia that actually embraces street art and graffiti. The live music scene is VERY strong here, with plenty of small, independent venues. Anything you want really...It just gives a great feeling for the diversity and actually embracing things artistic. I never really get the same impression when going to Brisbane or Sydney (though its not bad). Its just different somehow. A good lot of punk bands here in Melbs.... Marching Orders, Slick 46, No Idea, Bastard Squad, Pisschrist, Wot Rot are amongst the better known. I'm leaving out alot here. Honestly I can't say metalcore is that big here.... more that "hardcore" stuff like "I killed the prom queen" and "parkway drive". Seems common..Not that I really notice that stuff.
When I was in the US, I liken Melbourne to a mini L.A
