Indie culture is taking over
If you’re a parent, it’s safe to say pushing your kids onto indie culture is a wise decision. Indie has never been more popular and signs of its demise are slimmer than a new Postal Service record. The top indie festivals are selling out, the best commercials are breaking indie bands and some of the biggest fashion trends are spawned from indie designers. Shit, even CVS is playing good music now. So what’s next? Comedy. That’s right, indie comics are hotter than BP Oil. David Cross, Reggie Watts, Eugene Mirman, Jon Benjamin, Zach Galifianakis, Maria Bamford…and let’s not forget Aziz Ansari. Sure, MTV is lamer than Havaianas and while most of us won’t even watch the Movie Awards next week, it’s still a win for team indie. So, my advice to all you hipster parents, keep bumpin’ that chillwave, sportin’ those Field Notes and wavin’ your indie pride!
