It's been a known fact for years that Ratatat is hipster dance music. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Ratatat is 2 guys wailing on a guitar and bass to chillin
Electronica or even hip hop-ish beats. Listen to loud pipes, wild cat, or 17 years.

It's the people chilling at Starbucks with excessive piercings and retarded clothing. They name-drop authors, directors and musicians that they pretend to be familiar with, yet all they really know are a few shorts from Bukowski, David Fincher, and Ratatat/Sleigh Bells/Vampire Weekend/MGMT/Empire of the Sun/Black Keys/other bands that are more famous than they should be simply because their music is more accessible for its simplicity.

I didn't say that those were "hipster bands," as I don't think it's totally fair to label a band something just because certain douches are attracted to them. The thread title asked "Which bands to avoid in order to avoid hipsters," and then somebody asked to define hipster, that's all.

Q: how man hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb.

A: it's an obscure number you've probably never heard of it.


jokes aside there is room for all demographics at coachella, it's part of what makes the atmosphere fun (especially when camping). people are people.

DFA 1979 will not draw "hipsters" like a band such as Sleigh Bells will.

MissingPerson

I think you could definitely make an argument for DFA1979. They had the good sense to implode before their reputation or influence really took hold, but not before actually playing a couple of shows, so they became one of those "Oh, man, you should have seen DFA when they played to three people under my stairs in 2005" bands.

Also, the hightest rated Youtube comment on Romantic Rights live is "I want a moustache (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XyJMN14JSU)".

As has been said however, if you miss them for that or any reason, you're only cheating your damn self.

Hipsters - not necessarily wrong about this stuff.

However we chose to define hipsters, I think we can all agree that their presence, while mildly irritating, is much preferable to the company of bros, downmarket tweens, and neon war-painted etards (three groups which are not, of course, mutually exclusive).
