Recently, I went to a local show, and it reminded me of why I loved going to shows. It also reminded me why I wanted to get involved in the scene in the first place, so I wanted to know what people had to say about certain topics. This new series of guest blogs explores what people have to say about the Long Island music scene. I reached out to Older Than Oceans guitarist Nick DiPace to ask him what the scene means to him.
The Long Island music scene. To some, it’s going under. To others, it’s the best it’s ever been. To me, it’s a community. I’ve befriended so many talented musicians over the course of the past three years. I’ve also met a ton that had no interest in working together or making friends. That number has been dropping more and more, though, and I’m very happy to see it.
