Same here bro'. Most of my friends are not into the music I like let alone want to go to concerts/shows. I've met some cool people at the meetup group....discovered some new artists in the process. That's a wide range of music genres. If you look at my last.fm charts you'll see I'm the same way....though I like hip-hop hehehe. As long as its not country/soul/"reggaeton"/"tejano" I'm open to all kinds of music. :D

Hey thanks "Galactor" for the meetup site. That's definitely something that might come in handy. I normally go to more shows then my friends go to, so this would be nice for those solo adventures.
I typically go to garage rock and punk shows, but also electro-fused rock, "indie", progressive/ambient, some dub, anything funky, anyone that is up-and-coming, and anyone simply good. I'm not really into rap/hip-hop, hardcore metal, screamo, or... nickleback.

I rely mostly on last.fm's recommendations and the mailing lists I get from all the different Austin venues. Which music genres are you more inclined to? You might also want to check "Austin Live Music Mingle" meetup group at meetup.com People post ideas for music shows and based on votes people meet together to go to shows. That's an alternative to discover new music and make new friends.
