Not shocked. There are a LOT of gross dudes in indie music who get a pass because they're tortured geniuses (read: indie fan boy heroes). Rivers Cuomo is another one.
I found the indie music scene really toxic for women in the late 90s and early 00s. A lot of the male fans were aggressive, gatekeepy, manipulative, and misogynist. They didn't follow female musicians unless they were hot. I dipped into /r/indieheads recently, and the vibe is exactly the same as it was 10-20 years ago.
