The New York Press on The Streets
Can I just say: I think this whole idea that music fans want to keep their favorite bands underground is total bullshit. All of the music geeks I know spend their time shoving their favorite music at anyone within range: friends, lovers, strangers, everybody gets the pitch; we're worse than Amway distributors. Why do you think so many of us are djs?

I probably am a music snob, but it's not because I want to feel special. The couple times I've been to places where I'm not special, where I'm just another face in the joyful crowd...I liked it. A lot.

Like what he has to say about the Streets, though.
