I guess I was just trying to say that you can't contro who shows up. Plus, the Melvins play at places like that (it's the JUXTAPOZ art show, which is right in their scene) and at Grumpy's because they want to and they are friends with that crowd.
I think the heavy rock crowd can be pretty poseurish with all the "tough guy" trappings too; the Carhartt jackets, gas station shirts, etc as well.
I guess I was saying the art crowd doesn't control the market on pretentiousness; they are just easier to make fun of because it's a little more obvious.
I am a little protective of the Soo Gallery though; they are good people and have been very good to me and my friends. I'm not a visual artist personally, but my band released a record of a show we did in there an my bandmate is an art professor who has shown there in the past. I guess the phrase "shit art gallery" kind of set me off.
Better a shit art gallery than Big V's, I say.

I couldn't agree more.
