OK, so there's not as many of them in Portland as popular opinion would have you believe. Still, they do have a presence here in the city. But where do they come from?
I actually do like a lot of the music that they listen to. I suspect that being a hipster will end up being a lot like being a goth back in the day. A phase that you grow out of, but one that leaves you with an appreciation for good music and books. Or lets say, books and music that are more complex than mainstream tastes.
