The Indie Yuppie Phenomenon

So the NY Post ran this article about “Indie Yuppies” today (requires registration now!! grrr)

Here are some quotes (I added the links):

“The strain was first identified a few weeks ago by Vice Records label manager Adam Shore, who derided what he called the newly created “indie-yuppie establishment” in an interview with the Columbia Spectator.”

“Shore’s original comments were picked up by Scott Lapatine, who runs the heavily trafficked music blog stereogum.com.”

“In other words, you must be an active, contributing member of society who considers your iTunes library an extension of yourself and who turns up for work at 10 a.m. – though you may be hung over from last night’s secret Gang of Four show at the Tribeca Grand Hotel.”

“”I was like, ‘Oh, my God! That’s me!'” says entrant Tanya Manchini, a 31-year-old editor from Hoboken (who admits she was relieved the Nine Inch Nails show she saw on Monday night ended early).”

You’ll have to read the article for the rest.
