If you really want to score with some hipster chicks get yourself acquainted with the Ray LaMontagne

Apparently sbtrkt blew up with the holster crowd, which is probably part of the reason I didn't get a ticket to his upcoming dj set. Still upset about that.

Yea I dig most all previously mentioned...

Hipsters I lived with were big fans of Kings of Leon(hate em), Frusciante and The Beatles.... And really, a lotta shit I never heard that wasnt really good...

Wilco, Cat Power, Mike Stern, Animal Collective, Elliot Smith, Death Cab, Fleet Foxes, Beck some more notable hipster bands old roommates liked that I like.

The Shins, Modest Mouse, Mumford & Sons, Iron & Wine, Bright Eyes, Sufjan Stevens, etc. All the sorta indie rock about how boring life is lol. I was into it for awhile like 5 years ago, before even knowing wat hipsters were or anything. I saw Cat Power once, she was good. Great voice.

Hipsters are beginning to be into bluegrass now, though, which is a little annoying cuz they don't like it for what it is, they just see it as "ironic" cuz its so "uncool it's cool." My friends went to Fresh Grass Fest in Massachusetts, they said there was a lot of hipsters there. They seem to be more into the bluegrass-rockabilly bands though that are more like gypsy roots music hybrids, like Caravan of Thieves kinda stuff. A friend of mine prefers that, too, so its weird when i talk about David Grisman or Yonder or Leftover Salmon with them.

^ "All the sorta indie rock about how boring life is"

You've got Iron & Wine all wrong. I'm not trying to argue, I just think that doesn't even remotely describe his lyrics.

...but whatever. I don't really care what a "hipster" is or what they listen to. I like a lot of the stuff mentioned...

I think if I was going to have sex with another man, that man would be Sam Beam.

hipsters and blue grass...

There is a bar in my town that started having a free bluegrass night about oh....at least 5 of 6 years ago. PBR was 75 cents. it was awesome. Slowly the place got more popular, beer prices went up crowds grew.

Now the place is packed every Wednesday night, 70 percent hipsters 20 percent wook 10 percent who the fuck are you and why are you here people. PBR is 2 something for a can.

The hipster def like the rock - a billy type thing a lot. There is a band that has blue grass instruments but they play punk music with it. its god awful but its a hit at this place.
