In Dayton, Ohio, there is Kitsch - from Price men's store which is located downtown to the Arcade, a beautiful ornate downtown building on Third, waiting to be opened again. The Oregon District is filled with well-kept historical homes - each one different from the next. And as far as music goes - Dayton has a history as big as Memphis in the Soul department. The Capital of Indie rock! The Deal Sisters are from the east side. The people here boast of Brainiac. guided by voices, and newer bands like The American Static and Sleepybird. John Scmersal  from Enon called Dayton home before New York....and the band scene is always growing - perhaps there is a great future for all the talent here! Live music is on Fifth - The New Southern Belle - is an institution in Dayton. Well, not a literal institution, but everyone's past favorite dive bar.(Now, all spruced up) Great thrifting (On Linden and Woodman) Take a trip down East Third and hit a diner! There are so many privately owned businesses! That's why so many people never leave here- it's home!
