Nashville, Tennessee or Atlanta, Gerogia if you actually want to see bands. I don't know who lied to you and told you South Carolina haha. I moved here four years ago and I love Nashville though... Every music scene is blowing up here.
yeah i was going to say i don't think south carolina would be a wise choice if that's your goal. but yeah people in the south are very friendly as a whole. not that people elsewhere aren't, it's just a different sort of outgoing friendliness than elsewhere
