Dr_Shock said: Never been to Pittsburgh but I heard its a fun city. Boston does rock though. Actually, as much as I dump on Portland (the night life here can be lame). I love Portland....its close enough to Boston so you can be there in a couple hours if you want the crazy city environment but far enough away and quiet enough so I can avoid people when I want. And truthfully, I am happy as long as I am by the ocean.
Come on there are so cool bands out of Portland..twisted roots, rustic overtones etc. and the concerts in the park are awesome. I remember back in the late 80s there was a concert every night or more. those were the days.
Yeah and I remember going to Old Port Tavern every night I could where there was a band playing pretty much every night and no cover charge!
