Justin Johnson
Scene Reporter / Resident Texan
So, I'm Justin. Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. I grew up listening to various kinds of music, but got into punk, hardcore, ska, etc. through middle school and high school. I really started going to a lot of shows in college, when I lived 6 blocks from 6th Street in Austin, the live music capital of the world. In the tiniest, dank clubs, I've seen everyone from MXPX, Good Charlotte, New Found Glory, Dropkick Murphys, Thrice, Alkaline Trio, and many more. If you want to see my ticket stub, sticker, and flyer/club ad collection, I'd be more than happy to brag, I mean, show it to you. I've never played music, but I love it down the very bottom of my soul. I've seen shows all over Texas (obviously) but also all over the country. I've grown to appreciate many styles of music as I've grown older, but I'm still not a big fan of country music. "You're from Texas and you don't like country?" you say...Well, let's just say, one of my favorite jokes for when people say they DO like country music, I ask, "Which country?" That's the punk kid in me responding... Anyway, I hope to spread the news of some rad Texas bands we've got brewing down here. Regardless of what most people think, not all Texas are truck drivin', cowboy boot-wearin', calf-ropin' cowboys. :-] Cheers, y'all. (Yes, I DO say y'all...)
