Hipsterism is a devilishly tricky game. Its all about transforming your day-to-day life into an almost unmanageable mountain of MP3 mixtapes, limited-edition T-shirts, social networking, and 24/7 self-promotion. Other than your cherished laptop, the best portal to this kind of advanced 21-century living is the recently resurrected club night Misfit Fridays. Masterminded by Alexis Mincolla and Sam Baum of Team Overthrow, along with Damaged Goods (AKA Obi Tawil), this party is a playpen for the Beachs coolest kids and a proving ground for those looking to break the ranks.
Jumping off at 10 p.m., a swarm of Day-Glo sunglasses, faux-gold chains, and fierce fist-pumping will descend on Louis at the Gansevoort South Hotel for this weeks dose of electric decadence. With DJs Damaged Goods and Konflict, theres guaranteed to be indie, electro, and baile funk, among other bloggy tuneage. And while its free to party, the door is tight, so if you really want in, your pants should be tighter.
