"Amazing that these artists are so hip. It's like: take an urban culture, wait twenty years, take out all the emotions, all the opinions, all the oppositional tendencies, all the funk, all the sweat, all the vitality, all the black people, and then get a good agent and a good haircut. And someone will actually be fooled into thinking that YOU are the underground!"
Hilarious rant from Aaron at ATTT. Or at least hilarious for me, if only because so much of it rings familiar (based on a majority of my clubgoing experience in recent years). Just substitute Chicago for Providence -- or substitute any city you care to name, really.
