Midwest Music: Kevin Michael and the Who’s Who of Chicago Hipsters

So, I’m relatively new to the city and I’ve not been around enough to know “who’s who” of the Chicago hipster scene. Luckily, musician Kevin Michael shot his new music video exclusively in Wicker Park, featuring some of the notable faces of the Chicago scene. The only problem is, I see these adorably head-banded faces and scarved necks, male and female alike and I still have no clue, so I came up with an idea! You can watch the video, when you see someone of note, check the time on the video when they appear and leave us a comment with their vital stats and why they are a part of the great hipster movement that we love, love, love.

    You obviously are not from Chicago and you are very green to what is really cool. The “hipster movement” was started by suburban kids or kids that came from some small town into this big city and started dressing like those of us who have been is this “scene” for a long time. Darling, those of us who are naturally cool do not call ourselves “hipsters.” So please stop.

    Didn’t she say she was “relatively new to the city”. I hate when people leave rude anonymous comments. If you’re so fucking NATURALLY COOL, leave you’re name!
