The area around the coast-line that isn't directly on the beach. This includes the touristy attractions, hotels, campgrounds, and everywhere that isn't right on the sand (which is the beach) and yet still as the smell of salt in the air.
Do you want to go to the shore this weekend? We'll avoid the shoebie

Music usually influenced by punk, grudge, goth, indie, as well as classic rock. Sometimes called Modern Rock. It’s not designed specifically to be popular, usually doesn’t include any synthesizers or mixed music, and is usually less “harsh” than what one would classify as Hard Rock.
The label “Alternative” often applies to new music/bands before they become more widely popular due to creative people whose music does not fit into current genres.
Examples of Alternative Rock Bands: Interpol, NIN, Queens of the Stone Age, Beck, Audioslave, Garbage, The Mars Volta, Green Day, Weezer, Hot Hot Heat, The Killers, Coldplay, The White Stripes, Gorillaz, DMB, Modest Mouse, Moby, Chemical Brothers, Franz Ferdinand.
