Culture on the Cheap
Hipster: The Rock Band
Yesterday afternoon as I walked down Bedford Avenue I realized that the term “hipster” has indeed eaten itself. Once an epithet used by the unimaginative towards affluent 20-somethings, it has since become the nom de guerre for musical entertainers. Entertainers, who in all probability entertain hipsters. Oh, the irony.
For a mere six bucks you can see “Picked Clean By Hipsters” and the up and coming rock-n-roll juggernaut “Manboob”.
For those of you who are less patient, more anarchistic or simply cannot afford to shell out six bucks, the “Reagan Youth”, “Leftover Crack” and “Star F*cking Hipsters” will be playing for free this weekend at Tompkins Square Park.
