A Musician's Guide to Springfield Ohio
Springfield Ohio is home to approximately 65,000 people. It's a small city but has one of the highest crime rates in America. Thats compared to all communities of all sizes - from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One's chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 10. Within Ohio, more than 90% of the communities have a lower crime rate.
Why do I bring that up? Well if your a musician and your playing here then obviously keep an eye on your gear. Be careful loading and unloading your music equipment, especially at 2 am when your leaving the venue. The place can fool you because it is a smaller city and you might not think it would be too bad.
Now that being said, I'm actually from this city. I was born here and currently reside here. I kind of like it. There are some decent guitar shops and some nice venues that local bands should try to hit.
