Word has just come in that a new show is opening at the always awesome Cafe Royale. The reception is this Thursday, June 3rd, starting at 20:00 which means that everyone will probably show up at 23:00. I have no idea if this is going to radically suck if you don’t like hipsters or be radically awesome if you don’t like hipsters. In case you didn’t guess, I don’t like hipsters. But, instead of blathering about, I’ll just let the event speak for itself:
Thurs. June 3rd, 8 pm – Late
800 Post St,
San Francisco, CA
Artists include (several hipsters): Megan Wolfe, Teppei Ando, Kevin Buckley, Mario Delgado, Albert Nguyen, Tamar Solomon, Marcus Thiele, David Young V
Hipster joke: How many hipsters does it take to screw in a light bulb? What, you don’t know?
Although hipsters have existed in one form or another for decades, the hipster movement has become ironically more main stream, influencing the American status quo by supporting alternative art, music, and fashion. Like an epidemic, the hipster condition has spread across America and over the seas to Japan and other countries susceptible to American culture. We see hipsters every day riding their fixed-gear bicycles on their way to studying film at local art schools. They drink the most expensive coffee and the cheapest beer. Imagine a world where alternative culture is pop culture; a world where Vampire Weekend plays the half time show at the Super Bowl instead of Bruce Springsteen; a world where stores selling used records and clothing are as large and as common as Walmart. The purpose of this show is to create awareness of the hipster way and the rise in demand for outrageous mustaches, vacuum sealed jeans, high-school sports tee shirts, and the over-consumption of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
