WestPA Underground has moved!

Monday, March 14th, 2011

So I moved the WestPA Underground to a new, more specific domain. It was not an easy move. If any of you blog or work with WordPress, you will probably understand what I am talking about. It was a huge pain, and for awhile there, I thought the blog, with all its past posts and comments, was going to be lost. I finally had my service provider help me figure out all the technical problems and the site was recovered and saved! I will be using Facebook to notify when I do new posts, so be sure to check them out when you get a chance! Thanks.

Introduction!

Welcome to WestPa-Underground.

This blog is dedicate to documenting the underground music scene of Greensburg and Latrobe Pennsylvania (and surrounding areas) from 1986 to 2000 (give or take).

As an aging individual (I am in my late thirties) who grew up in this region and participated in the scene during this time period, I thought it would be a good idea to finally collect all my personal artifacts, that related to this fun little music scene, in some sort of cohesive presentation (instead of in random boxes and folders sitting in my basement). By collecting and presenting my collection of photos, gig flyers, recordings, videos, etc. in a very public way on this blog, I hope to create some kind of “document” that will provide a window into this scene (both for myself and anyone interested). I really hope others who were hanging out at the Greensburg Denny’s after the shows during that period will share their thoughts or maybe their own collection of artifacts that document the Greensburg and Latrobe scene. So please, leave a comment, provide a link to your defunct band’s online discography (that you finally digitized from cassette), or send me your old songs, photos, gig flyers, or whatever, so they can be posted on this blog for all the world to finally see and hear!
