as is customary in the blogosphere, the compilation of year-end lists never ends… even weeks into the new year either due to laziness, partying, and/or family gathering depression.
i thought i would drag out the top 10 (er… 8) onslaught by digging into ye olde brutal archive and recap the first-ever calendar year of brutal hipster blogging with some highlights and higherlights. some posts were breaking, some instigated mad controversy, others were totally overlooked… but all spread the good word.
its certainly sad to see negative vibes within the los angeles music community particularly coming from a victory by a common nemesis. but such is the happenstance of success and growth spurred by unchill city enforcement.
a “band” called imperial stars has resorted to extreme measures to perform a shitty song that no one ever wanted to (or should) listen to by stopping traffic on the busy 101 freeway in los angeles.
sometime around 10:30 am today, imperial stars blocked traffic with their ed hardy-caliber decorated tour bus and began performing an impromptu concert. fortunately, lapd (who hate hipsters) also hate d-bags bros too and arrested the band.
aptly titled “traffic jam 101”, the song is a reminder why the terrorists hate us. feast your eyes on this horrid music video:
with the rising population of hipsters in los angeles, this has forced “true” hipsters to find more underground venues, like echo curio, for congregating and discovering new bands. its likely this threat of uncontrollable growth has forced the no-fun police to attempt to extinguish any sign of budding community.
