iPod App Lowers Hipster Bar

  • For the price of a 99-cent iPhone app, this existence can be yours...
For those wishing to become "hipsters" -- scrupulously dressed young adults with strong ideas about white-person music -- but uncertain how to begin, a new iPhone/iPod application points the way.

BeVideo, which also provides iPhone guides to bankruptcy and yoga, has produced a "complete guide on how to be a hipster."

By lowering the hipster bar, this app promises to spread ironically worn cowboy shirts beyond their Mission District confines. Lacking sufficient record store jobs, they'll open stores of their own, creating a local economic renaissance, making available money for Deep Vs and Phils.

According to the app's ad copy:

"Hipster, you'll learn all the basics of the hipster lifestyle, from how

to make your own skinny jeans, to how to cruise around on your hipster

1-speed, to how to perfect your hipster attitude."

The new app also includes a message board, allowing neophytes to "share

your favorite lifestyle tips with other aspiring hipsters."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
