there are good things happening in CT lately as well... specifically the new haven area.

although there is really no indiepop scene, local pop bands are starting to spring up and new haven is showing up on the radar of a lot of touring indiepop acts. the fact that yale has basically taken over the city of new haven means there are tons of people around just waiting to discover pop music.

my wife and i have started booking indiepop bands in new haven and pairing them with local bands to raise interest. we also work in conjunction with the new haven artspace gallery to book bands for their monthly artspace underground benefit parties. in the next few months we'll have visits from the tartans, very truly yours, boy genius, surefire broadcast and the hush now. we're also planning on releasing a cdr compilation to bring local and out of state pop bands to light in the new haven area.

we blog about our project at http://www.tweefort.com

Immensely, thanks! And perfectly timed - I'm knocking about in Providence this week getting to know the place a bit better, so I'll certainly be following your pointers. Thanks!
Please let me know how you like the city!

Bostonians! I'm going to be in your city between 19 - 23rd October. I don't know what to do or where to go, or really why I'm going. But I'll be there.

sorry for picking up this old thread, but i need cool advice for visiting new england. we're flying to toronto in may and will then drive all through new england in about a week, and i want to give each state (probably just one city though) like a day. we will, most likely, stay in boston and providence one day, but the rest i'm not so sure! what are some good inn/towns/cities/areas to stay in, in VT, NH, ME (preferably south) and CT?
we have a couple of friends who are very fond of boston, so i'm pretty sure they will give us a list of things to do. the rest however, i'm not so sure. we're not exactly crazy about history or museums, but it could be touristy stuff. or not, it could just be pretty lakes or trees or little villages or whatever.

You should make your CT stop in New Haven. There's great food, lots of cool architecture thanks to Yale, decent bars and shops and there could be good music depending on when in May you'll be there.

New Haven has the best pizza going: Frank Pepe's, Modern, or Sally's.

In Vermont I'd recommend Burlington - it's a cool college town and there's usually interesting stuff afoot, and it's a nice change of pace from the more industrial Boston and Providence.

I wagged on about Providence earlier, but if you're looking for Boston recommendations I can probably give some. Let me collect my thoughts and return.
