The majority of the public probably won't get too worked up at this prospect, and that's all right with Johnson, a man who has found his niche. As he puts it, "There's always going to be people doing interesting things that are never going to be mainstream--and that's what I'm interested in. I'm not interested in bands where people say, 'Yeah, I was into them a year before they were big.' I'm interested in bands where people say, 'I'm into that band, and they're never going to be big, because they're so fucking weird.' That's the kind of people who interest me--the ones in their own world."
Dub Narcotic Sound System, with the Blast-Off Heads and Strictly Ballroom. 9 p.m. Thursday, October 23, Grimace Warehouse, 774 Santa Fe Drive, $5, 571-5655.
