Dec 17, 2012 —  We get it, people love One Direction, and Katy Perry, and Justin Bieber. And if you're into the indie and underground music scene, it’s just one of those things you have to accept. Like long lines at the DMV. Or traffic whenever you’re in a hurry.

We're not judging Biebs. We would all love his bank acount. But a lot of people simply prefer to have their music well-removed from mass marketing, heavy merchandising, and endless radio play.

There are thousands of indie music venues around the world to help you find that scene, hosting all manner of musicians working the circuit as they spit poetry, drop riffs, lay down tracks, beat their own drums, and toot their own horns.

These venues exist in the shadows of big arenas and major concert halls, but they are not beneath them. These are the temples to The Smiths, Spoon, LCD Soundsystem, Elliott Smith, Grizzly Bear, and hundreds of other indie legends. So check your schedules, book your tickets, and prepare to rock out at these incredible indie spots around the globe.
