I sometimes think the indie music movement and the craft beer movement are pretty similar in this day and age. For example, indie and underground music -- like craft beer -- have been getting more and more contributions and more attention (see: Sleigh Bells on Saturday Night Live
) and has started to more obviously infringe on the mainstream Bud Lights and Miller Lites of the music world. Someday, perhaps soon, both the craft beer and indie music worlds will reach a point where the line between independent and mainstream has been completely blurred. Usher's Looking 4 Myself
is a sign of these times and also a sign of things to come.
