Well, where I live there is not a very strong hc scene. I'm from Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico and my city was like many places, one day it was "famous" and everybody liked it, but a while ago the scene died.
But well, the few people who keep going have to go to the next city to see shows, so I have the opportunity to see how things are in other cities.
You have to listen to these bands:
Strong Belief (Monterrey)
xIt's Nowx (Monterrey)
Alguna Vez Fui Ciego RIP
And I have to tell you, over there in Monterrey the vegan scene is big and awesome. Thanks to people that I met over there I become vegan too 3 years ago.
