    I love Dischord and unhealthy amount.

  • I was actually gonna list that too! I also really like Faraquet and Q and Not U, those are both late 90's/early 00's DC bands.

  • I actually just ordered a package from Dischord and got Q and Not U's "No Kill No Beep Beep" because I had heard great things about it/them. I really like it a lot. It's fun, but it still has teeth on it.

    Other contenders of mine would probably be late 90's screamo in the tri state area. Saetia, Jeromes Dream, You and I, The Assistant. A whole bunch of a great bands came out of there.

    Also, Sioux Falls in the late 90's early 00's was great. The Hareste, An Embrace of Angels, Sinking Steps... Rising Eyes, Spirit of Versailles.

    For a modern scene I would probably have to go with Pennsylvania. I think it's mostly Lancaster and Pittsburgh that are creating the bands, but: We Were Skeletons, 1994!, Algenon, Snowing, Who Goes There?, and Houston We Have a Problem.

  • Yeah, PA emo is where it's at!

    and I love New England hardcore/emo:
    They And The Children, Sofx, Sinaloa, Daniel Striped Tiger, ghosting. (thanks for your rec), Like Beasts, iwishididntexistrightnow, featherweight, etc
