This Week in Local Crime / Is It Art, or Isn't It?

There was so much 90's hip-hop at the Replay for this year's Nogglefest that it sounded like the medley contest of a Cl.thier gig. While Noggle and his fellow celebrants shook their asses politely in the back of the room, others performed more visibly, chief among them the young lady who stood atop the benches in the center of the patio, seducing two lucky gentlemen with the lyrics to "Pussy Control":

"Pussy got bank in her pockets
Before she got dick in her drawers
If brother didnt have good and plenty of his own
In love pussy never did fall."

Richard: I don't think that girl was the traditional hipster and I wish I'd gotten her number."

The evening ended peacefully without a single shot fired, but that wasn't the case a block away, where shots were fired among the crowd loitering in the parking lot near the Granada after a rap event called "Bay Boy Post Game Party." No one was injured, but the LJ-World's on-line talkbackers are riled up. One on-line hipster named Farney Mac says:

"Funny how these shootings always seem to coincide with hip-hop shows. I don't recall anyone getting shot after, say, an Okkervil River show."

Richard: "He's got a point, but at the same time you might start longing for the excitement of a little gunfire if you went to an Okkervil River after-party and spent a half hour listening to PBR-fueled hipster parse the lyrics to 'Bruce Wayne Campbell Interviewed On The Roof Of The Chelsea Hotel, 1979.'"


The Bourgeois Pig hosts the opening reception for local artist John Geery's "Terminals to Turnpikes" exhibit tonight, featuring colorful paintings of
"18-wheelers from the 60's to the late 70's" (LJ-World).

Chip: "I like it because I can understand it. It's just a bunch of colorful trucks. I vote 'art' on this one."

This is unrelated to your blog, but I just wanted to let you know that Look at this Fucking Hipster has inspired a new blog: Look at this Hipster Fucking. It's exactly what it sounds like:

Wow, Beth. You just made my day. Why didn't I think to combine hipsterism and pornography!

"No, YOU get up and put Surfer Rosa back on!"
