Hey, Hipsters! Oakland's the New Vacation Spot!

Posted By on Wed, Jun 24, 2009 at 7:25 AM

Killing My Lobster really killed it on this one: a travel video that attempts to convince Dolores Park hipsters that there's a budget vacation for them in this exotic place across the bay called Oakland. Lots of riffing on white kids in skinny jeans here, but the best part of this clip has to be the footage of ghost riding the Subaru.

p.s. Poor Dolores Park. This week it was ground zero for not one but two clips making fun of the cool elite. Below, My First Earthquake's "Cool in the Cool Way" video. Not as funny as Killing My Lobster, but just as wary of what goes down in the Mission's greenest catwalk. (Little do they know the real hip kids get down at Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park these days. It's all about no shoes and dogs on ropes. Duh.)

  • 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.'"
