Nerds Like Me
I was sold even before the music started. DJ Shadow offered a lengthy spoken introduction that included a heartfelt shout-out to the Music Exchange. A few minutes later he and collaborator Cut Chemist tossed Kansas City, Kansas, resident Marva Whitney into the mix. The celebrated DJs could have stopped there and I would have been content. It was reassuring to discover that the artists on stage at the VooDoo were even bigger music nerds than me. I shot this footage to share with friends who couldn't be there on the snowy Tuesday night.
