Cream of the Local Scene: Musically They're All Over the Map

The L.A. music scene continued to diversify in 1993, expanding, if possible, on the eclecticism that marked last year's list. Rap, folk, grunge, roots, new wave, pop-rock, industrial and more are represented in this look at new acts that made the biggest area impact this year .
