Plus, you need to differentiate between music fans and musicians themselves. Yes, these fans tend to do the typical hipster thrift store skinny jeans look, but the actual acts themselves as SXSW usually tend to bring something to the table style-wise.


All styles of music from early rock n roll, 60's psychedelia and mod music, 70's punk, glam, funk, 80's new wave, downtown NYC fashion when hip-hop, post punk, avant garde, disco, and reggae combined has had some serious influence on fashion... in a good way. I could name HUNDREDS of musicians within all these styles of music that have pushed fashion forward.

Of course, the concert goers are only going to be a pale reflection of this but still.. I have been watching videos of live Kraftwerk concerts from the 70s and the kids at those shows had the right idea fashion wise. Look at photos of music shows in downtown NYC in the early 80s and you will see so much that is being copied by designers today. However, the stuff on display here is an eye-sore, regressive, lazy, and worse than all these things; not creative and NOT FUN.

Hipsters have been priced out of neighborhoods like Williamsburg and Silverlake.

Pharaoh guy and the midget are the only people I respect in that series. What the fuck has happened to Austin since I left?

pretty annoyed by the recent popularity of lazy "street style" being lauded as some type of authenticity

good point, I hate this hipster anti-fashion bullshit. This is regressive indeed, thank you for articulating this better as I didn't have enough knowledge to give specific details about music movements influences.

This kind of shit also plagues art now...Art is a bit embarassing now, and I blame it on how apathetic and nihilistic postmodern society has become.

This is a weird generalization to make. Do you go to many modern art exhibitions at all? Not even going to comment on the next clause, or speculate on the role the word "postmodern" plays in that sentence.

But whatever though.

Those photo's pretty much sum it up. I've been here for 19 years and while I have enjoyed both SXSW and Austin plenty, I now feel like the old guy who's just yells 'get off my yard'.

Hipsters are usually the ones who support these so-called "singers" who sound as if they're using the microphone to brush their teeth.

It's funny the NYT decided to pay someone for this filler.

I could have taken these same pictures at a Wal-Mart near any college anywhere.

lol. Two of the people in the spread are friends from Baltimore. Actually just got off a bus with the guy in the middle of the last picture.
