The Name Says It All!

If you havn't worked it out already: you can click on some of the words in the above to hear Real Audio Samples!!!!
The band, which is actually called the Hipster, was recorded live at the Cargo Club by Nat LePage a couple of years ago.
The Hipster is still alive and well, and consists of whoever is around at the time brave enough, and possibly desperate enough, to play in the most musically chaotic ensemble imaginable.

I hope you enjoy their music as much as I do.
